Tampa Tax Fraud Defense Attorney

Representing Individuals and Businesses in Florida

Tax fraud and tax evasion are criminal offenses. Filing a false or fraudulent tax return, intentionally leaving information pertaining to taxable income off your tax return, failing to file a return at all, and neglecting to pay taxes you rightfully owe are all examples of tax crimes. 

When an individual is believed to have committed a serious tax crime, he or she can expect the IRS to have their Criminal Investigation Division investigate the matter and if warranted, file criminal charges. Some of the most publicized tax crimes involve large companies, celebrities and people who have sizable assets and estates. Those are not the only people who can be charged with tax crimes, however. Any taxpayer can be charged with a tax crime under the right circumstances.

If you think you might have made a serious error in your tax filing, or you believe the IRS may accuse you of having committed a tax crime you need to take immediate measures to defend your rights and protect your interests by contacting Brian T. Loughrin Tax Attorney.

What are “Badges of Fraud”?

There are many types of tax crimes and they are commonly detected in an IRS tax audit. Tax examiners are trained to look for and take note of indicators of fraudulent activity by a taxpayer.

These signs are called "badges of fraud" and include items such as:

  • Excessive dealing in cash
  • Destroying records
  • Failure to maintain adequate records
  • Not cooperating with tax examiners or other IRS personnel
  • Hiding assets
  • Filing a false return and many more

What are the Consequences for Tax Fraud?

When a tax examiner finds you have been guilty of improper activity, the normal action is to assess you a civil penalty, such as 75% of the additional tax that the IRS says you owe. Your case may, however, be referred to IRS's Criminal Investigation Division (CID).

In most cases, you will not be informed that you are being investigated until the IRS is ready to bring charges. If you are found guilty of a tax fraud crime, you may be imprisoned for a period of many years and face fines into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The government must prove that your actions were done willfully. This can be very difficult to establish and can be the weak link in the case against you. It is, therefore, a primary point that we work to attack while striving to prove that your actions were not with the intent to defraud.
