Defense Against Charges of Failure to File a Tax Return

Because the IRS offers a reward to people who report criminal tax fraud, criminal tax investigations usually start when an acquaintance — an ex-wife or disgruntled employee — informs the IRS of a failure to file a tax return.

Failure to file a tax return is a federal crime. The government has six years from the date a tax return was due to criminally charge you. If you are convicted, you could face prison time as well as enormous civil tax penalties and interest assessments, on top of the taxes you owe.

Strategic Tax Defense

The defense against charges of failure to file a tax return must be two-fold: the first goal is to convince the IRS not to bring criminal charges and the second to address repayment of back taxes. Better to pay with money than with the loss of freedom and years of your life.

We then work in conjunction with a tax attorney to eliminate tax penalties, to minimize tax assessments, and to work out a repayment plan. The IRS has a voluntary disclosure program that stipulates that if a taxpayer voluntarily admits a tax error and makes an effort at repayment, the IRS will typically avoid criminal prosecution.
