Tax Fraud Protecting Your Rights & Defending Your Future

Tax Fraud Lawyer in St. Louis

More Than 60 years of Experience

Tax fraud, also known as tax evasion, is a serious federal crime that can get you into trouble with the IRS. As a resident of the United States, you are legally obligated to fill out a tax return every year, which determines if you owe the government any money for that year based on your earnings. If you are found in violation of tax law, do not properly file your tax return, misrepresent your income, or fail to file altogether, then you can be prosecuted for tax fraud.

The following actions can be considered a violation of tax law:

  • Concealing or transferring assets
  • Claiming false deductions
  • Failure to file tax returns
  • Engaging in illegal activities
  • Dealing in all cash
  • Reporting an inaccurate income for the year
  • Exaggerating the amount of deductions
  • Claiming personal expenses as business expenses
  • Having two sets of books
  • Putting false amounts in your books

If you have been accused of violating tax law, then speak with an experienced St. Louis criminal defense attorney from our firm for aggressive representation in your case.

If the IRS suspects that you are neglecting your legal duty to file proper taxes, then they may impose a civil tax fraud penalty up to 75% of the total taxes owed, including interest. On top of the penalty, the IRS may also send your case to the IRS Criminal Investigation unit in order to determine if criminal charges should be filed. The penalties for a tax fraud crime can include up to 5 years imprisonment as well as a fine up to $500,000. If you are being audited by the IRS, then it time to take legal action and obtain a tax fraud lawyer.
