Miami IRS Violation Attorney

Being investigated by the IRS for tax violations?

Nobody likes to receive mail or phone calls from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Of all the agencies of the federal government, the IRS is probably the least popular in Miami and nationwide. In fact, a recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that 4 out of 10 people throughout the United States have an unfavorable view of the IRS.

As bad as it can be to receive a tax bill or other unfriendly, but routine, notification from the IRS, it is far worse when you are contacted by authorities and notified that you are being investigated for alleged criminal violations of the federal tax laws.

The Internal Revenue Code includes several different statutes on the topic of criminal tax violations, including:

  • I.R.C. § 7201 - Tax evasion
  • I.R.C. § 7202 - Willful failure to collect or pay over tax
  • I.R.C. § 7203 - Failure to file, supply information or pay tax
  • I.R.C. § 7205 - Fraudulent withholding exemption or failure to supply information
  • I.R.C. § 7206 - Fraud and false statements
  • I.R.C. § 7207 - Fraudulent returns, statements, or other documents

In addition to Internal Revenue Code tax crimes, there are also a number of criminal offenses under Title 18 of the United States Code, such as 18 U.S.C. § 286 Conspiracy to defraud the government with respect to claims. Whether you are charged under the I.R.C. or with a Title 17 criminal violation, the consequences of a conviction are severe.

For example, a conviction under I.R.C. § 7202 for failure to collect or pay taxes is punishable by a fine of as much as $10,000 and up to 5 years in prison. Further, you would have to face the prospect of living into the future with a conviction on your criminal record, a fact that can make it all but impossible to find suitable employment.
