Tax Evasion Laws & Penalties

The IRS recognizes two main forms of tax evasion: evasion of payment and evasion of assessment. If an individual hides their assets after a tax becomes due or owing, this is considered attempt to evade payment. If an individual transfers assets to prevent the IRS from determining an accurate tax liability, it is considered an attempt to evade assessment.

Tax evasion is considered a felony, no matter how much money you owe. In order to obtain a guilty verdict, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt every element of the offense.

The following are the basic elements of tax evasion:

  • An attempt to either evade tax payment or assessment
  • A tax is due and owed
  • Willfulness

Since tax evasion is a federal crime, it is often punishable by a maximum five years and a fine of up to $250,000.
