Miami Tax Evasion Attorney

Tax Evasion Is a Felony Criminal Offense

Nobody likes paying taxes and seeing a large percentage of his or her personal or business income go to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Unfortunately, as the saying goes, nothing in the world is certain except for death and taxes. Many people, however, get away with cheating the system by underpaying on their tax returns or by not paying at all. The IRS has only limited resources to track down and punish tax evaders, and a large percentage of violators are able to slip through the cracks.

If you have been notified that you are under investigation for alleged tax evasion, you need to arm yourself with an effective legal defense. At The Law Offices of Joel DeFabio, we offer comprehensive counsel to help clients facing tax evasion charges resolve the matter with a positive outcome. Let our Miami tax evasion attorney fight for you.

The Potential Consequences of a Tax Evasion Conviction

The crime of tax evasion is covered in Internal Revenue Code § 7201, "Attempt to Evade or Defeat Tax." It involves any willful attempt to evade or defeat any tax or to avoid making payment for such taxes.

You could be charged with tax evasion for:

  • Understating your income
  • Claiming false deductions
  • Concealing assets
  • Providing misleading information on your tax return
  • Underpaying tax liabilities

If the IRS has turned its focus on you, you could be at risk of being arrested and facing the harsh consequences of a conviction. Tax evasion is not merely a civil offense—it is a felony, punishable by up to $250,000 in fines and 5 years in federal prison.
