Can I Go To Prison For Tax Crimes?

The answer is yes, absolutely. The penalties for tax evasion — a federal crime — could be five years in prison and fines. You can also be on the hook for money the IRS says you have underpaid over the last several years.

It can sometimes take years for the Internal Revenue Service and other governmental agencies to complete their audits and investigations into tax crimes. For your protection, it is best to hire a lawyer experienced in criminal tax law as soon as possible.

At The Law Offices of Bradley J. Friedman, I work with clients to understand their background and circumstances leading up to this point. Then we work together to determine what could be the best outcome possible if you are facing tax fraud or other serious charges. As your attorney, I will determine a strategy in hopes of helping you move on with your life.

What Does The Government Consider Tax Fraud?

Tax fraud is the act of intentionally misrepresenting your income or household income on tax returns or falsifying information on documents. If you fail to file a return or pay taxes, prosecutors have to prove you did so intentionally.
