We routinely assist clients with criminal tax investigations opened up by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), Department of Justice Tax Division, and the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services (“CT DRS”). We are involved in federal tax investigations from all over the country. Our extensive tax experience and experience dealing with the government serves us well in representing clients faced with federal and state criminal tax investigations. Our attorneys have represented businesses and individuals in cases involving failure to report income, allegations of fraudulent deductions, failure to collect and pay employment taxes, failure to collect and pay sales taxes, allegations of preparing false returns, failure to file returns, as well as other tax-related offenses.
As always, our goal is to make sure the government can prove its criminal charges and to that end have many successes having criminal investigations closed and returned to civil examination where they belong. In cases where there has been a crime committed, we work aggressively to make sure the government does not overstate its tax case and give our client every opportunity to minimize any tax loss calculation and, therefore, any sentence.
Once the criminal aspects of the case are concluded, we assist our clients with the civil aspects, handling any civil examination issue and collection enforcement activity by the government agencies, including orders of restitution.
