NC Tax Fraud Defense – We can provide the legal guidance that you need
We can provide the legal guidance that you need. If you have been served with a Federal Grand Jury Subpoena, an IRS administrative summons for documents, or if you have been visited by the Special Agents of the IRS-CI or NCDOR-CI, we can provide the legal guidance that you need. The IRS may encourage you to make a voluntary disclosure. However, we encourage you to seek the advice of a North Carolina criminal tax lawyer before making any statements to the IRS.
Our Defense Network
We work with forensic accountants, former IRS and Department of Revenue agents and other professionals to develop your best defense to a criminal tax charge. Whether you are the subject of a criminal tax investigation, or are concerned that you might be in the future, you should consult with an experienced North Carolina criminal attorney immediately.
Criminal Tax Investigations
If you have been contacted by IRS Special Agents, you should consult with an experienced criminal tax evasion attorney. Most people who are contacted by Criminal Tax Agents are afraid to decline the Agents’ request for an interview because they believe that if they do, the Agents will believe they are hiding something.
NC Dept of Revenue Criminal Investigation Division
Like their IRS counterparts, the North Carolina Department of Revenue Criminal Investigation Division typically investigates tax evasion, false tax returns, and failure to file and pay employee withholding taxes. Additionally, the NCDOR-CI investigates failure to file and pay sales and use taxes, employee pay withholding and settles North Carolina residency disputes.
Tax Defense for Small Business and Self Employed Individuals
Whether you own a business or are self-employed, or whether you are a tax preparer or advisor, a CPA or an accountant, if you have been contacted by Special Agents of the Internal Revenue Service or the North Carolina Department of Revenue, you need an experienced criminal tax attorney on your side. Don’t try to handle an IRS criminal tax investigation or North Carolina Department of Revenue criminal tax investigation on your own.
