Criminal Tax Matters
Tax offenses that are considered criminal are known as criminal tax matters. These matters involve the intentional evasion or fraudulent manipulation of taxes owed to the government. This can include actions such as underreporting income, claiming false deductions, or failing to file tax returns altogether.
Criminal tax matters are a serious offense and can result in criminal charges, fines, and even imprisonment. The IRS has the authority to investigate and prosecute individuals suspected of engaging in these activities.
Tax crimes encompass a range of illegal activities related to taxes, and they can carry significant penalties if convicted. Some common tax crimes include tax evasion, which involves intentionally underreporting income or hiding assets to avoid paying taxes owed. On the other hand, tax fraud involves knowingly providing false information on tax returns, such as inflated deductions or fabricated expenses.
It is important to note that tax crimes can also lead to additional penalties, such as the seizure of assets, forfeiture of property, and loss of professional licenses. These consequences can have long-lasting effects on an individual's financial stability, reputation, and overall quality of life.

"Being selected for an audit is arguably one of the worst things that could happen to a small business owner, or at least that's how I felt.
It felt a lot less stressful when I hired Jess to communicate with the IRS on my behalf. Her extensive knowledge of tax law was evident when she would educate not just me but also the RA on the proper law.
She went the extra mile every day - with driving to me, essentially holding my hand through an interview, and making sure all responses to the RA were effective.
If you get audited - I strongly recommend having her by your side." - Parul G.
