Defending Employers Charged with Fraudulent Withholding Exemption Certificates
Employees who are alleged to have overstated their federal tax exemptions on W-4 forms and employers who aid and abet these employees in reporting inflated exemptions may face serious criminal charges. Overstating or inflating federal tax exemptions on withholding exemption certificates is one scheme that many taxpayers use to evade or defeat tax.
Alleged fraudulent withholding certificates may be used as evidence in an IRS criminal matter when, for example, a worker moves from job to job often, resulting in incomplete reporting of income or failure by employers to submit full and accurate withholding exemption certificates.
Charges of fraudulent withholding exemption certificate submission may be one of a laundry list of employment-related tax charges that the IRS is bringing or has already brought against you (whether you are the taxpayer or a financial advisor of a business or employer) — perhaps including other charges such as the following:
- Attempts to evade or defeat tax
- Failure to supply information
- Concealment with intent to defraud
- Omnibus clause violations
- Conspiracy to commit offense or defraud the U.S.
An experienced tax criminal defense attorney will be able to determine, depending on the facts of your case, what the most successful defense is likely to consist of.
