      Frequently Asked Questions About Tax Crimes

      What Is An IRS Special Agent?

      IRS Special Agents are the ones who are in charge of investigating tax crimes. If one contacts you, that means that they think that you committed a tax crime. After the investigation, they will then determine if you should be charged with a tax crime. They may try to catch you off guard and first meet you in person outside your office or elsewhere. It is important to get a lawyer before speaking with them. We are ready to help there.

      Can You Go To Jail For Not Paying Taxes?

      Yes. You could face up to a year in prison for each year you did not file taxes. The IRS and the states take these charges seriously and can be aggressive in pursuing people they believe have broken the law. We are ready to defend you against these charges and will use every bit of our legal knowledge to prepare the best defense for you or your company. If you are a San Diego resident and have been charged, contact us today!

      What Is The Difference Between Tax Avoidance & Tax Evasion?

      It all depends on your intent. If you try to lessen the liability for you or your company, that is tax avoidance. If you just don’t pay at all or file a return, then that is tax evasion. Contact us at Silver Law PLC if you have been charged with either. We can defend you in any court – local, federal, or even the Supreme Court. Reach out to us today to learn more about the difference between these two.

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

      The IRS takes this charge very seriously. You could find yourself paying $100,000 in fines and spending up to five years in federal prison. If you find yourself being charged, you need to get the best lawyers to represent you. Like the ones from Silver Law PLC. Our attorneys know IRS law and their thought processes.
