Dallas, Texas, Tax Violation Lawyers
Bank secrecy laws protect customers and their accounts from outside parties demanding information. However, these laws are not absolute. Recently, banking and investment company, UBS, agreed to provide information to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) about United States customers with secret bank accounts. As a result, individuals who failed to report these offshore bank accounts may now face criminal prosecution or civil/administrative IRS actions.
At the law firm of Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, our attorneys defend individuals facing criminal charges regarding offshore bank accounts and other hidden assets. Whether you are under investigation for hiding or failing to report money or you have been formally charged with tax evasion, we have the experience, knowledge and skill to prepare a strong criminal defense.
If you are in need of an experienced federal criminal defense lawyer, contact the attorneys at Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, in Dallas, Texas today.
Aggressive Advocates for Our Clients
The IRS uses sophisticated investigative methods to identify potential tax violations. For example, when the IRS believes someone has intentionally failed to report a UBS or other offshore bank account, they can immediately launch an investigation to gather evidence for a formal charge. They are often unforgiving and the excuse that you simply did not understand the applicable tax laws will be insufficient.
Our firm has handled all manner of offenses from tax fraud cases to civil and criminal tax liability issues. 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.
