Washington D.C. Criminal Penalties Lawyer

If you are convicted of a criminal tax matter, you could face significant criminal and civil penalties. At Brown, PC, we can explain what these penalties generally are and how they may affect you. Using 20 years of experience, we can help you understand what has occurred in similar situations. While it is impossible to predict the future, we can then help you predict the outcomes you can expect and work to reduce the potential criminal penalties you face.

Return preparers accused of criminal tax matters often face as much as five years in prison for every single false or fraudulent tax return that they are found to have prepared. They may also face other forms of incarceration, including home confinement, electronic monitoring or a combination of these.
