Audits and Criminal Tax Investigations
State and federal tax authorities have the power to investigate your taxes via audits and criminal tax investigations. Some audits are straightforward matters that uncover honest mistakes. However, an audit can also be the beginning of a criminal tax investigation involving not only the IRS, but also the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and additional government agencies.
If you or your business is the subject of a criminal tax investigation, you must take immediate action to protect your rights. The Berry Law Firm understands the serious nature of tax fraud charges and will work to prevent an indictment. Please call our office at 888-822-7079 to schedule an appointment with our Nebraska tax fraud attorneys today.
Tax Fraud and Related Charges
Our lawyers handle cases involving all tax fraud and related offenses, including:
- Income tax evasion
- Sales tax fraud
- Falsifying records
- Inflating personal or business expenses
- Taking false deductions or un-allowable credits
- Money laundering
- Failure to report offshore accounts or international income
- False billing
For criminal tax violation charges, we can work to prove that the problem was accidental or a misinterpretation of the facts. Police or federal agents may misunderstand bookkeeping methods or misinterpret other circumstances. For example, an accounting error can look like an intentional act of fraud.
It is important to contact an attorney immediately when you are the subject of a criminal tax investigation or a lengthy audit. Working with a defense attorney during the investigative stage may help prevent your case from proceeding to the prosecution stage.
