Tax Fraud

Tax Fraud Cases in Nassau County

Our Long Island Criminal Defense Lawyers Can Help!

“In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.” This famous Benjamin Franklin quote describes how many Americans feel about their required duty to pay taxes. Over the years, taxes have become extremely complex to allow people who deserve deductions to keep more of their money. However, this has opened the door for people to try to cheat the system by either paying less than they owe or claiming a larger refund.

This is known as “tax fraud,” and this white collar crime carries severe penalties if you are convicted in court. At Foley Griffin, our dedicated team of Nassau County criminal defense lawyers is determined to help you successfully fight back against tax fraud charges and maintain your innocence in court.

The Dangers of Tax Fraud Accusations

The IRS does not always choose to pursue criminal charges for those accused of tax fraud. If you don’t owe very much, odds are the IRS will hit you with interest and penalties, but you likely won’t go to jail for it. In instances of severe tax fraud where you or your business attempts to hide assets or dodge tax liability, you could face some of the stiffest criminal penalties of any non-violent crime.

Common types of tax fraud include:

  • Not filing a tax return whatsoever
  • Filing a tax return with numerous intentional errors
  • Claiming less income than you actually made
  • Claiming a larger refund than you are actually owed
  • Accepting deductions you don’t qualify for
  • Illegitimately hiding assets to avoid taxes
  • Claiming more losses than you actually sustained

Tax fraud is a federal crime that is usually tried as felony. It’s not uncommon for someone accused of tax fraud to face jail sentences of 3-5 years or more, along with fines of up to $250,000 for individuals and $500,000 for businesses! With so much on the line, it’s vital that you don’t hesitate to retain legal counsel for your case.
