Facing a Tax Audit for Possible Tax Evasion? We Can Help

If you’ve illegally avoided paying taxes, you can face criminal charges. Our team of tax attorneys defends businesses and individuals accused of tax evasion. Common tax evasion schemes — often discovered through a tax audit or reported by an unhappy employee — can include:

  • Using company money to pay for personal expenses like vacations, travel, or vehicles
  • Establishing a trust under false pretenses — like turning the family home to the trust and using that trust to deduct maintenance expenses
  • Collecting taxes from employees and using that money to pay for operating expenses rather than turning it over to the IRS
  • Contracting legally with an outside business to manage payroll where that outside business (also called an employee leasing company) fails to pay collected taxes to the IRS
  • Failing to pay local, state, or federal taxes — intentionally or by accident
  • Underreporting income or overestimating expenses/ deductions

When you’ve been accused of contributing to or operating a tax evasion scheme, you need a knowledgeable tax attorney. We have a number of defenses at our disposal, depending on the intent of your tax evasion, like:

  • You’ve made a mistake filing taxes or your company made a filing error, and you didn’t intend to commit tax evasion
  • You believe the government coerced you to commit tax evasion when you wouldn’t have done so otherwise
  • The prosecution can’t prove you willfully, intentionally didn’t pay taxes

 Whatever your situation, we’ll fight to protect your interests and your rights.
