Tax Evasion Considerations
To be considered a criminal tax violation, the tax evasion/tax fraud must have been committed intentionally. We can help you prove that it was accidental or a misinterpretation of the facts. If the fraud was intentional, we can attempt to minimize penalties, which can include fines and prison time.
Many times, people are unaware of their rights in criminal tax cases. Mackay, Caswell & Callahan will work to protect you from the power of the federal government. The IRS has the authority to arrest you for criminal tax fraud. IRS criminal investigation division (CID) agents may interview you, your family and business partners as part of their investigation.
In some cases, the ATF, DEA or FBI may also be involved. If these agencies are part of the investigation, we must determine what aspects of your case they are examining. This information will affect our defense strategy.
We take cases involving all types of tax fraud, including falsifying records, inflating personal or business expenses, taking false deductions or unallowable credits, not filing taxes, money laundering, embezzlement, abusive foreign trust schemes and false billing.
If you are the subject of an audit that continues for a long time, call the tax lawyers at Mackay, Caswell & Callahan immediately; this may be an indication that the IRS is waiting to file criminal tax evasion charges. We will work to keep your case from progressing from the investigative stage to the prosecution stage.
