Have you been notified by the IRS criminal-investigation division that you are under investigation for unfiled taxes, tax fraud, or any other deliberate misrepresentation on your tax return? If so, you will need the help of an experienced tax firm for criminal tax defense.
Some people believe that a notice from the criminal-investigation division is the same as being picked for audit. However, criminal investigation is much more serious than a routine audit, which is simply used as a means to examine your return items in detail. If you are under criminal investigation, it means that the IRS believes that you have deliberately committed a tax crime by either failing to file your taxes, or by including false information on your tax return.
If the IRS finds that you are guilty of tax crimes, you can serve time in prison. This is why it is important to understand the process and have a tax firm on your side throughout the investigation. The IRS will conduct audits in an attempt to uncover fraudulent information on your tax filings. If you have been chosen for an audit, and you know that you have false information on your tax file, you will need to employ a tax firm for audit representation.
Besides being picked for an audit when you know you have included false information on your tax return, there are some other indications that you are being investigated. If you, your family members, or your co-workers have been visited by IRS criminal-investigation division agents, or even FBI agents, you could be under investigation for tax crimes. Your bank or other financial institutions you use can receive a subpoena for documents related to your taxes and finances.
Instead of talking to agents directly, or trying to dispute the findings any agent may claim, you should employ the services of a tax firm.
