      Frequently Asked Questions About Tax Crimes

      What Is An IRS Special Agent?

      Individuals or businesses thought to be guilty of tax fraud by the IRS are investigated by IRS Special Agents. These agents are carefully trained, highly skilled detectives who are aggressive, thorough, and diligent in their search to uncover incriminating evidence. All earned income in the US has the potential to become involved in crime and therefore falls under the jurisdiction of the IRS. It is imperative to seek the counsel of an experienced lawyer immediately if you have been contacted by an IRS Special Agent.

      Can You Go To Jail For Not Paying Taxes?

      The short answer is, yes. While the IRS does not pursue many criminal tax evasion cases for people all over the nation, there are many they do pursue. The penalty for those caught and convicted is harsh, including both penalties and jail time. You are required to pay all the taxes you owe, plus additional interest. You could also face jail time of one year per tax year you did not pay, up to five years. With a lawyer on your side, you have a much better chance of minimal consequences.

      What Is The Difference Between Tax Avoidance & Tax Evasion?

      Tax avoidance refers to any action taken by an individual or business that lessens their tax liability and increases the amount of return they receive at the end of the tax year. Tax evasion refers to the deliberate underpayment or non-payment of taxes owed. Both are equally fraudulent, with conviction leading to hefty fines and penalties along with jail time. Consult with a reputable lawyer immediately if you have been charged with tax fraud.

      What Happens If You're Found Guilty For Tax Evasion?

      Any individual or business found to be guilty of tax evasion or another fraudulent charge will be fined a large amount and sentenced to prison. Most tax crimes typically carry a maximum prison sentence of five years and a maximum fine of $100,000. It is critical to the outcome of your case to contact an experienced lawyer immediately who understand tax law and the IRS, and is able to defend your rights with skill.
