What Should I Do If I Believe I Am Under Investigation by the IRS?

What Should I Do If I Believe I Am Under Investigation by the IRS? So if you're watching this video and you believe that you're being investigated criminally by the IRS you probably have a good sense of why you're being investigated and depending on how certain you are of this you need to stop right now you need to call an attorney and you need to retain a criminal tax attorney to help you the reason for that is criminal investigations are multi-year investigations they're very focused they're very detail-oriented and the criminal agents that work these cases put in a lot of time often when the subject of these investigations were the target of these investigations become aware that a criminal agent is looking into their conduct it's already too late because the government is very far along on the case they've started either contacting third party witnesses they've contacted the subject your target directly where they've taken other action to make their presence known they don't make their presence known unless they're pretty far along in their case it's not like they get a case in the beginning they go knock on somebody's door know they're working behind the scenes they're looking at tax returns that were filed they're looking at other source documents they're looking at information they're pulling bank records and they're building a case only after they've built that case and they're certain or fairly certain that they're going to attain a conviction do they go out in the field and start collaborating them and so by the time you become aware that a criminal agent is on to you they may be very very far along or you may be almost the point.

Where you're going to get indicted that's why it's important to stop to get a tax attorney involved get a criminal tax attorney who knows what they're doing and to build a strategy to figure out why they're looking at you and what you can do about it in this stage the earlier that you get counsel involved the earlier that we can build a strategy the earlier that we can start mitigating ish the better the best thing that you have the biggest advantage you have when dealing with a criminal case is time you've got all this time that these investigations go so start working immediately start mitigating your risk start building your defense and work quickly to solve your criminal tax issue.
