Tax offenses, like other types of white-collar crime typically involve non-violent, financially motivated decisions. Tax violations may involve any number of crimes including failing to file a tax return, falsifying information on a tax return, failing to report total income, selling untaxed goods, criminal tax fraud, schemes to defraud including material fraudulent representations, and hiding or misleading information on out-of-state transactions. If you are charged with a tax crime or are under investigation for a tax crime or fraud, you should contact a criminal defense lawyer who handles tax crimes immediately.
