Fraudulent Returns, Statements or Other Documents
Criminal charges such as charges of "fraudulent returns, statements or other documents" may be brought against you or your business in connection with any of the following:
- Individual income tax returns
- Business income tax returns
- Any document signed under penalty of perjury and submitted to the IRS
Brown, PC has substantial experience representing clients who face criminal charges such as these. Our clients tend to be highly educated, extremely wealthy, and quite sophisticated. Many are referred to the law firm by their trusted advisors (CPAs, investment advisors and attorneys, for example).
In many cases, an individual accused of submitting a fraudulent tax return based on falsified records faces broad charges on many counts. The charge of "fraudulent returns, statements or other documents" may appear to be redundant, overlapping with other similar, specific charges such as the following:
- Attempts to evade or defeat tax
- Failure to file, supply information or pay tax
- Fraud and false statement
- Omnibus clause violations
- Conspiracy to commit offenses or defraud the U.S.
- Tax money laundering
Each charge is another quiver in the arsenal of weapons that the IRS and Department of Justice use to bring about a conviction. A criminal defense case involving such sweeping accusations is not typically an appropriate case for a general practitioner criminal defense lawyer. It is recommended that business owners, professionals and financial advisors who have been targeted by the IRS contact an attorney with extensive experience handling complex tax-related criminal defense and complicated tax controversies.
