Tax Fraud Defense And Whistleblower Support
Tax fraud is a serious allegation that carries stiff penalties. Whether you are being accused of a tax crime or are wanting to report one that you have witnessed, the attorneys at The Garber Law Firm, P.C. have the experience to help you navigate this complex and bureaucratic process.
Fighting Back Against The IRS
The federal government — and the IRS in particular — is not lenient with those who try to avoid their tax obligations. Individuals charged with tax evasion or tax fraud face multiple years in prison, and up to $250,000 in fines; corporations face up to $500,000 in fines. Moreover, parties under investigation may find their assets frozen or seized, inhibiting their ability to do business.
We can help. Since 2001, the attorneys at The Garber Law Firm, P.C., have assisted individuals and businesses in Marietta and throughout northern Georgia when they face criminal allegations stemming from tax matters. We have a thorough understanding of the pertinent case law, and know how to leverage it to our clients’ advantage.
Experienced Tax Fraud Defense
Our firm is adept at protecting our clients against a comprehensive range of allegations, including:
- Intentionally failing to file a return
- Intentionally failing to report income
- Intentionally neglecting to pay due taxes
- Preparing and filing a false tax return
- Submitting false or fraudulent claims on a return
IRS auditors are skilled investigators. In pursuing a case, they are on the lookout for a number of “red flags” — the falsification of expenses, the concealment or transfer of income — that can stand as evidence in trial.
Our lawyers are prepared to fight back. We know how to work with opposing counsel to reduce the charges and penalties our clients face. If an agreement cannot be reached outside of the courtroom, we are adept litigators and are unafraid to take matters to trial.
Assistance In Tax Fraud Whistleblower Claims
In addition, our firm maintains a core competency in qui tam (that is, whistleblower) claims. The federal government has in place a number of safeguards for individuals who witness tax fraud and want to speak out.
Qui tam claims are crucial to our government’s ability to reduce tax fraud crimes. For their efforts, whistleblowers are typically entitled to a moderate percentage of any funds the government wins back from offenders.
