Understanding the ins and outs of tax fraud

| Sep 1, 2016 | White Collar Crime

It goes without saying that nobody wants to pay taxes. Of course, you realize that this is not an option. For this reason, you know what’s expected of you and you follow the law down to every last detail in Minneapolis.

Unfortunately, as of late, the government has begun to crack down on tax fraud. There are many potential reasons for this, including a slow down in the economy. Regardless of why the IRS is taking a hardline stance, you need to do whatever it takes to avoid trouble.

Before we go any further, keep in mind that a basic tax mistake is not the same as tax fraud. Instead, an honest error can be cleared up soon enough so you can move on.

Some of the most common types of tax fraud include:

— Neglecting to file a final tax return.

— Purposefully underreporting or failing to report income.

— Payroll tax violations

— Illegal offshore accounts

— Fraudulent deductions

Remember, you can be charged with tax fraud as an individual or company. Furthermore, the end result can be as serious as time in prison and steep fines.
