Miami IRS Defense Attorney
Fighting Tax Law Violation Accusations in Florida
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 among Americans. 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 routine notification from the IRS, it is far worse when you are contacted by authorities and notified that you are being investigated for alleged violations of federal tax laws. If you are under investigation or have been arrested for an IRS violation, it is time to schedule a free consultation with The Law Offices of Joel DeFabio. Our IRS violation attorney in Miami can get to work right away building a strong defense on your behalf.
Types of IRS Violations
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 IRS 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 regarding 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 five years in prison. Further, you would have to face the prospect of living with a conviction on your criminal record, which can make it all but impossible to find a job, rent a home, or obtain a loan.
