Tax Charges

Prosecution for a tax violation can relate to income taxes on the federal, state, or local level, to sales and use taxes in connection with business operations, or to any other tax levied by a taxing authority.  The essence of a tax prosecution is by example to ensure compliance with the voluntary tax systems, with failure to file and fraud being two of the most egregious violations.  The theory behind tax prosecutions is to compel others to comply with the voluntary tax system by making examples of those who intentionally under report income or exaggerate deductions, or who otherwise unlawfully evade the tax laws, by sending them to jail if caught.  Any person or entity facing a possible criminal prosecution should seriously consider obtaining legal representation by an attorney with specific experience in criminal tax enforcement as early in the process as possible.
