Criminal tax investigations and charges are serious and scary. The IRS has specially trained agents and support from other law enforcement agencies to prosecute tax crimes, including tax evasion, filing false tax returns, submitting falsified documents and tax fraud. Hone Maxwell LLP tax attorneys have successfully defended individuals and businesses from various criminal tax allegations.
Early intervention in an investigation or assistance on an audit often provides the needed legal guidance to resolve the matter before charges are filed. A tax audit can quickly become a criminal tax investigation, and innocent mistakes on tax returns can be construed as intent to defraud the government. HMLLP helps clients mitigate the potentially devastating consequences of a criminal tax investigation or prosecution.
