Accused of tax crimes? A tax attorney may be able to help

When accused of any sort of crime, the first person Connecticut residents may think to call is a criminal defense attorney, which is understandable. While they can help on some level, when accused of tax crimes, a tax attorney with experience handling tax crimes cases may be a better option. The consequences associated with conviction on such crimes can be significant. Having someone who has a strong knowledge of tax law can certainly prove valuable to your case.

Are fraud and negligence both tax crimes?

Receiving word from the Internal Revenue Service that something does not seem right on one's taxes can be alarming. As tax crimes are an issue in Connecticut and elsewhere, the IRS will take the time to investigate. Here is the thing, though — not everyone intentionally commits fraud when doing their taxes. Some people just make mistakes. Negligence and fraud are not the same things, and negligence is not necessarily a crime.

Tax crimes do not pay

A woman in another state is going to prison after being found guilty of preparing and filing false tax returns. The moral of this story is simply this: tax crimes do not pay. Connecticut residents who find themselves facing or potentially facing criminal charges over tax filings could help themselves by seeking legal counsel as soon as possible. 

Tax crimes do not pay

A woman in another state recently pleaded guilty to a form of tax fraud. She has yet to be sentenced, but she may end up facing years behind bars and have to pay a significant fine. The lesson here -- whether one resides in Connecticut or elsewhere, and whether one does his or her own taxes or taxes for other individuals -- is that tax crimes do not pay. 

Connecticut tax crimes: Fraud or mistake

Income taxes -- no one really wants to deal with having to file and pay them every year. It is, however, a part of life that, until tax laws are changed, is not going away. So, Connecticut residents fill out their forms and get things submitted -- usually on time. The problem is, some commit tax crimes while in the process, with or without knowing it.
