Columbus Tax Crime Defense Attorney
LAWYER IN COLUMBUS AS YOUR TAX CRIME REPRESENTATION
Every April 15th, the Department of Justice makes it a point to return indictments reminding taxpayers of the consequence of either not filing a return or not paying taxes that are due. Tax evasion prosecutions are often initiated when the taxpayer commits an affirmative act resulting in the underreporting of income. In contrast, tax fraud occurs when the taxpayer makes a knowing misstatement about a material fact on their tax return. Sentences for these offenses are driven by the tax loss as well as the level of sophistication that was used to either evade the taxes that were owed or used to perpetrate the fraud.
