A tax crime charge (state or Federal) can negatively impact your business and family life. The IRS and State agencies are usually aggressive and won't give up until there is a successful conviction. According to a report released on September 30th, 2022, the IRS boasts an impressive 90.6% conviction rate for individuals who commit criminal tax crimes.
They have a special branch - Criminal Investigation Division - devoted to investigating possible tax crimes. Examples of these tax crimes, include fraudulent failure to file returns, filing a false return, tax evasion, fraudulent failure to collect taxes, submitting false documents, bank fraud, etc.
So, if there is even a slight chance that you could be charged with any of the crimes above, you need to consult an attorney who is experienced in criminal tax law right away. Never make the fatal and irreversible mistake some taxpayers make – talking to agents and handling the matter themselves. Don't be fooled - the IRS agents are not there to befriend you. After all, this is not the time to take chances on your case. It might land you in jail.
