Criminal Tax Law

The boun­da­ries bet­ween le­gal tax sa­vings and il­le­gal tax avo­idance can so­me­ti­mes be fluid, and are of­ten hard for lay­peo­ple to re­co­gnize at first glance. Yet it’s clear that tax avo­idance cea­sed long ago to be a mi­nor of­fense. If there’s a risk of being tar­ge­ted by the in­ves­ti­ga­tors, it’s es­pe­cially im­port­ant to move pru­dently.

If there’s a ques­tion of tax avo­idance or tax un­der­pay­ment, you need not only a know­ledge of tax law, but also a tho­rough un­der­stan­ding of cri­mi­nal pro­ce­dure if you’re go­ing to hold your own against the tax in­ves­ti­ga­tors, the of­fice for fi­nes and cri­mi­nal of­fen­ses, or the pu­blic pro­se­cu­tor, and in court. You need to think out the ne­cessary steps with ex­perts right from the start. For ex­am­ple, you should look into whe­ther you can volun­ta­rily come for­ward and thus qua­lify for am­nesty. Not only that, but the for­mal re­qui­re­ments in this con­nec­tion have to be sa­tis­fied to the let­ter – so­me­thing that’s al­most im­pos­si­ble for a lay per­son ac­ting on their own. We of­fer you skil­led de­fense in cri­mi­nal tax mat­ters, with ef­fec­tive as­sis­tance in se­ar­ches, sei­zu­res, in­ves­ti­ga­tive pro­cee­dings and at trial. Our range of ad­vice also in­clu­des pre­ven­tive con­sul­ting to keep your tax prac­tices from ever ta­king on any hint of im­pro­priety in the first place.
