One of the most serious crimes one can face from the IRS is a charge of tax evasion. If convicted, a person can face a felony charge, large fines and prison time. If you have been charged with tax evasion or are under criminal investigation for tax fraud, you do not want to face this predicament alone and you should know your rights under the law.
Tax Evasion Charges
Tax evasion is considered a form of tax fraud and refers to an intentional avoidance of paying your taxes. It is not a simple misunderstanding or carelessness when filing your tax return; it is a purposeful evasion of paying taxes through specific behaviors. Evidence that you intentionally provided false information, hid income or concealed assets to mislead the IRS can be used to compile a case against you for tax evasion.
