Guilty plea made by rapper in tax evasion case

Sometimes, tax evasion cases will end with a plea agreement being reached, rather than a trial. These agreements generally involve prosecutors promising some form of leniency, such as a dropping of certain charges or a lower sentence recommendation, in exchange for a suspect submitting a guilty plea. Recently, a plea agreement was reached in a criminal tax case involving a man who has a career as a rapper and an actor.

Woman who worked for IRS accused of tax fraud

Federal authorities are often aggressive in their investigations of alleged tax fraud schemes. And, it is not only the taxpayers who supposedly benefited from alleged fraud schemes that can face criminal charges. Authorities will also generally pursue charges against individuals who are suspected of helping taxpayers fraudulently receive tax benefits. These individuals can include tax preparers or even people who worked for the IRS. This can be seen in a tax fraud case which has recently arisen in Georgia.
