Are You Facing Tax Fraud Charges?

Call an Experienced Oakland Tax Attorney

Any person, organization or enterprise can be charged with tax fraud. As a tax attorney in Oakland and Alameda County, I, Steven M. Simrin, have encountered many types of tax fraud cases, from state to federal court matters. Tax fraud is often difficult to investigate and prosecute as well. Hiring an attorney at an early stage of the process can help build a solid defense.

What Is Tax Fraud?

By its legal definition, tax fraud is considered deliberately attempting to cheat or push off responsibility for paying one’s taxes. Some who have been charged with this offense may not even be aware that they have committed the act, as the laws can be quite complex. However, there are others who have purposely tried to defraud the IRS by illegal means.

I can provide you counsel if you are facing any of the following tax fraud matters, such as:

  • Failing to file a tax return
  • Underreporting your income
  • Evading taxes
  • Filing a fake tax return
  • Claiming false deductions
  • Falsifying records
  • Hiding assets

Remember, prosecutors have the burden of proving that tax fraud occurred. Many times, tax fraud cases can be resolved rather quickly. There are very involved, extended periods of investigation. Without defense to assist you, you could face severe penalties, which could include imprisonment and fines costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. You need an attorney who knows what to anticipate, no matter what your case involves.

When you employ me as your attorney, I can negotiate with prosecutors to help clarify the circumstances, so that we can defeat the charges. I am also prepared to aggressively defend you if you are a tax preparer facing serious federal charges.

I am an experienced negotiator with over 20 years of experience. Call me now to book your free consultation!
