A fraud lawyer from Pravati can help
There are many legal ways for businesses and individuals to lower their tax liability but sometimes, either as a result of an honest mistake or a misinterpretation of the law, people make false claims in their records and on their taxes, thus opening themselves up to accusations of tax and accounting fraud.
Announcement From The Justice Department
In 2014 the Justice Department announced that they’d be cracking down on those who were found guilty of tax and accounting fraud. In a press release issued by the North Carolina U.S. Attorney’s Office, they told the story of a tax preparer who’d committed tax fraud by lying for clients on their tax records, netting them large refunds. He pled guilty to one count of aiding in the preparation of false tax returns and was facing up to three years in prison and as much as $250,000 in fines.
Legally, there is a big difference between a charge of accounting and tax fraud and criminal tax evasion. In either case, to be found guilty, the prosecutors must prove that the taxpayer was intentionally defrauding the government. Penalties for these charges range and can include up to five years in prison
