Criminal Tax Liability
Texas Criminal Tax Liability Attorneys
At Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, in Dallas, Texas, we are a premier defense firm that represents individuals charged with tax evasion or other forms of tax fraud. As former federal prosecutors, our attorneys understand the prosecution's tactics in preparing and pursuing these cases. They use this knowledge to prepare compelling defenses designed to counter the government's arguments and produce results.
Our firm is readily able to represent individuals whose criminal tax liability stems from the following accusations:
- Failing to file tax returns
- Failing to report any foreign bank accounts
- Overstating or understating deductions
- Failing to report all income and assets
We Effectively Challenge the Prosecution's Case
The IRS has certain criteria that they use in deciding whether to pursue criminal tax liability or civil tax liability. Typically, if someone owes a significant amount of back taxes, the IRS will pursue criminal charges. However, while pursuing charges may be relatively simple, obtaining a conviction can prove to be much more difficult.
In order to obtain a conviction, the government must prove that the tax violations were intentional. At Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, we work closely with former federal and IRS investigators to help identify flaws in the IRS investigation and provide us with information for our own investigation. Our experience handling these complex cases enables us to aggressively defend clients in federal court and challenge the government's assertion that the tax evasion was intentional.
