Just Now Finding Out That You Are Accused of Committing Tax Fraud?

You’re going about your day as you normally would. Wake up, take a quick shower, brush your teeth. You head downstairs to start the coffee maker and grab the newspaper from the front porch before stepping out the door and heading out to work. Your day at the office is the same as usual–you fire up your computer, respond to what seems like a million emails, and attend a meeting or two.

At the end of the day, you head home from work and that’s when you get the phone call–you are being investigated for tax fraud. “Tax fraud?” you wonder to yourself. “But I filed my taxes way back in March!” Needless to say, you might be feeling more than a little bit confused. If you’ve never been accused of committing tax fraud before–and let’s hope that this is true for most of the people who might be reading this blog–then you may assume that you’ll be notified of such an accusation shortly after you file your taxes.

So What Happened Exactly?

The truth of the matter is that regardless of when you file your taxes, authorities are still looking for cases where tax fraud may have been committed. It doesn’t matter if they uncover it in April or in August, the fact remains that people do commit tax fraud and that others are actively looking to uncover evidence of a crime.

Of course being accused of committing tax fraud doesn’t necessarily mean that you are guilty! Thankfully here in the United States, you are innocent until proven guilty. The thing that can be terrifying for a number of people, however, is knowing that there are people out there who are actively looking to uncover evidence of a crime. That can be disconcerting if you filed your taxes normally and are then alerted to the fact that you are under investigation.

Hiring a Good Tax Fraud Attorney is the Answer

Just like with any of the crimes that are committed, there are instances where the guilty end up in jail and other times they go unpunished. Similarly, you may be innocent of the crime you are accused for, but that doesn’t mean that you’re automatically off the hook. That’s where having a good criminal defense attorney can play a large part. The task of proving your innocence falls to you and you’ll need someone in your corner who knows the ins and outs of the charges that have been leveled against you. That’s where we come in.
