Are You Under Investigation for Allegations of Aiding or Assisting False or Fraudulent Documents for Tax Returns?
A tax preparer, tax attorney, bookkeeper, or representative of a mortgage lender may be charged with a crime because of their role in connection with a tax return that the IRS has targeted for closer scrutiny.
If you, as a third party, are at risk of being dragged into a tax controversy or criminal tax investigation because a document that you prepared or advised on is under scrutiny — and allegedly false, according to the IRS, your reputation as a stellar tax professional may be on the line. You cannot afford to have allegations of tax preparer fraud leveled against you.
You may suspect that you are being used as the "fall guy" for a client who is in legal trouble and pointing the finger at you. The IRS may have a long list of offenses that the client is under investigation for or has been accused of such as the following:
- Tax money laundering
- Attempts to evade or defeat tax
- Removal or concealment with intent to defraud
- Fraudulent tax preparation
And you are now included in the allegations because of your supposed role "aiding or assisting false or fraudulent documents." Contact an attorney while there is still time to rescue your reputation and set the matter straight.
