IRS hopes extra screening will reduce fraudulent refund payments

Fraudulent tax returns hurt everyone. To combat this crime, the IRS is forced to devote costly agency resources. State and federal government budgets are deprived. And for the average taxpayer, an additional consequence this year will be delayed tax refunds.

Failing to file returns may result in criminal tax charges

The IRS isn’t the only agency that will go after you on charges of tax evasion or tax fraud. The Connecticut Department of Revenue Service’s website also encourages individuals to report suspected tax fraud. Notably, the IRS also has local field offices, and inter-agency cooperation may be utilized when tracking down suspected criminal tax activity.

IRS steps up its criminal tax prosecution efforts

Many Americans are familiar with the civil penalties that the Internal Revenue Service can impose for unpaid taxes. However, there are also behaviors that could give rise to criminal liability. To put it simply, an individual could serve time if convicted for filing a false income tax return or committing tax fraud or evasion.

Talk to an attorney about options for handling your tax debt

Tax liabilities are the category of debt that has the potential to haunt you. The IRS has strong collection tools, such as filing a notice of federal tax lien against your property or garnishing your wages. In addition, taxes are typically not discharged in bankruptcy, and they can seriously damage your credit score.
