Possible Criminal Tax Violations

The Worst-Case Result of a Civil Audit

Undergoing an IRS audit is a very stressful time for any individual or business. The possibility of heavy fines and other civil penalties hangs over your head until the matter is resolved. If, however, the auditor should uncover fraud or suspects other criminal activity, the situation becomes even more serious.

The auditor may decide to refer the matter to the IRS Criminal Investigation Division – the law enforcement arm of the IRS – for further criminal tax investigation and possible prosecution. The average sentence for tax crimes is 48 months. Therefore, it is critical that you seek representation from a strong team of criminal tax defense lawyers who know how to handle these high-stakes cases.
