Understanding Tax Fraud
Tax fraud is typically considered a white-collar crime, in that it is non-violent and financially motivated in nature. It can be prosecuted at the state or federal level and can apply to individuals and businesses/corporations.
Some examples of tax fraud include:
- Falsely reporting income on tax returns
- Failing to report all income received
- Failing to file an individual tax return (with intent to defraud)
- Falsely claiming too many or too few dependents
- Making any fraudulent claims for the purpose of receiving tax benefits
- Operating a business without the proper state license
- Omitting sales tax transactions on tax documents
- Intentionally underreporting a business's true income
- Paying employees in cash to avoid taxes
These and other examples of tax fraud are taken very seriously by state and federal prosecutors but, at The Ambeau Law Firm, we know how to build a strategic defense on your behalf. Reach out to us today to learn more about how our firm can assist you.
