In recent years, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has dramatically increased its efforts to investigate possible fraud by tax preparers in Dallas, TX and nationwide. The IRS has hired more than 1,000 agents with the goal of investigating tax preparers. Consequently, increasing numbers of certified public accountants (CPAs), tax firms and other professionals are finding themselves in the crosshairs of an IRS investigation. In many instances, criminal charges can arise from these investigations.
Underreporting a taxpayer’s income has the impact of reducing a taxpayer’s overall tax burden. The IRS carefully scrutinizes these issues, and if it has reason to believe a tax preparer is creating a false or misleading return, it will act swiftly. In certain instances, the IRS may claim that the taxpayer and tax preparer are colluding to commit fraud.
