The IRS does not take kindly to individuals and businesses that try to defraud the federal government. In response to suspicious accounting procedures and questionable business practices, the IRS will go after those who would seek to avoid paying the taxes owed to the government. The penalties for tax fraud vary. A simple tax fraud can burden you with extensive fines while a complex tax fraud scheme involving large sums of money can result in not only heavy fines but also imprisonment and financial ruin. If you face accusations of tax fraud, you should hire a Tampa federal defense attorney immediately.
Tax fraud can be especially dangerous for businesses as an accusation of fraud can destroy a company's reputation and shake customers' and share holders' faith. A common form of tax fraud in business involves falsifying employee information. By falsifying employee status businesses will try to avoid withholding taxes as well as social security and Medicare payments.
The government prosecutes this form of tax fraud heavily because it not only rips off the government but the employees as well.
