If you’re facing an Illinois or federal tax crime charge, it can negatively affect both your business and your home life. Tax agencies at the state and federal level don’t press charges for the fun of it – they play to win. In fact – in 2022 – the IRS had an impressive conviction rate of 90.6% for criminal tax crime charges.
The Criminal Investigation Division is a special branch of the IRS that focuses on investigating potential tax crimes, such as the following:
- Fraudulent failure to file returns
- Fraudulent failure to collect taxes
- False return filings
- Tax evasion
- The submission of false documents
- Bank fraud
If there is even the slightest chance that one of the above applies to you, it’s time to get proactive by reaching out for the professional legal counsel of a seasoned criminal tax attorney in Chicago.
Too many taxpayers reach out to the IRS personally – in an attempt to take care of potentially criminal matters themselves. The problem is that the IRS is interested in its own bottom line, and will not be swayed by your sob story, your friendly nature, or your claimed ignorance on the topic.
