What To Do If You Have Been Contacted By The IRS
Do you have reason to believe the Internal Revenue Service is investigating you?
Maybe the IRS has contacted you or others you’ve done business with through the years. As humans, our initial reaction is avoidance. We hope that everything will be OK, and nothing will come of it.
That’s not a wise choice.
If you are questioning what to do next, the answer is to hire an experienced, qualified attorney when you believe an IRS audit has begun or as soon as possible afterward. It may be possible to avoid criminal charges and see if the IRS will agree to an offer and compromise on your back taxes.
As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, I’ve seen many people in the Detroit area who have made the mistake of trying to avoid problems by offering justification to the IRS.
If the IRS contacts you:
- Remain silent.
- Don’t give any statements without the advice of a lawyer.
- Let your lawyer do your talking for you.
Communication is tantamount in tax evasion charges, but it is in your best interest to have an attorney communicating with investigators for you. Remember, every deal the IRS makes is a deal in their favor. You want someone in your corner.
