Federal Tax Evasion Charges

Need a Boca Raton federal crimes attorney?

The government defines tax evasion as intentionally using illegal means to avoid paying taxes. This can apply to an individual or a corporation and be committed any number of ways. Submitting false information on income tax documents is common, but there are numerous ways to misrepresent income and other details to avoid paying what is owed.

As with any federal crime, tax evasion is considered very serious and comes with heavy penalties. My firm has extensive experience in federal court and knows how to handle the intense investigative processes federal cases can bring. I'm well versed in shielding my clients' rights during this process and making sure the best possible case is presented in court.

If you or a loved one is facing federal tax evasion charges, don't hesitate to call a Boca Raton federal crime lawyer today for aggressive representation!

Severe Penalties for Tax Evasion

While it's easy to understand tax evasion as a kind of theft, it isn't punished how theft crimes are. In theft crimes, penalties are usually dictated by the value of the money or property stolen. Tax evasion penalties, however, carry blanket sentences that can be applied to even minor tax evasion.

Penalties for federal tax evasion can include:

  • Up to five years in prison
  • Up to $250,000 in fines
  • Up to $500,000 in fines for corporations

Depending on the means by which money and assets were hidden to avoid taxes, additional charges may apply to your tax evasion crime. Willful failure to collect or pay tax, fraud, failure to file, and money laundering all are charges commonly included in tax evasion cases.
