IRS Criminal Prosecutions

After years of little activity, the IRS is again aggressively pursuing cases for tax law violations

Hundreds of new special agents with the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) have been hired in Dallas, TX and nationwide.

Tax evasion, false and fraudulent tax returns, the failure to declare offshore bank accounts, the use of sham offshore trusts and failure to file tax returns are hot buttons these days.

The lists include those who have been using undeclared offshore bank accounts and trusts to hide income and assets from the IRS.

The IRS is very serious in prosecuting these individuals. Early and proactive representation is essential in order to address these issues effectively.
