Miami Tax Fraud Attorney

Many people try to pay as little tax as possible. They may do so by underreporting or failing to report income. Sometimes this is done by accident, but in many cases, it is done deliberately.

This is called tax fraud and it is against the law. Tax fraud involves intentionally deceiving the government regarding the amount of taxes owed. Some common examples include claiming to be a resident of another state, making false claims for refunds, falsifying business records, and closing and reopening a business to evade taxes.

Tax fraud comes with steep penalties. The fine is 75% of the owed amount. For example, if you owe $100,000, you will be hit with $75,000 in penalties. This is huge. Don’t try to handle this situation. Contact Asilia Law Firm for a solid defense. We fight for justice, integrity, and civil rights.

Types of Tax Fraud

Tax fraud can take various forms. Here are some common types of tax fraud:

  • Underreporting income. This involves not reporting all income earned, such as cash payments, investment gains, rental income, or income from side jobs. Taxpayers might underreport the amount of income earned to reduce tax liability.
  • Overstating deductions. Taxpayers may inflate deductions, such as business expenses, charitable donations, or medical expenses to reduce taxable income.
  • Concealing income or assets offshore. Taxpayers may hide income or assets in offshore accounts or shell companies to avoid reporting and paying taxes on them.
  • Falsifying documents. This includes forging receipts, invoices, or other documents to support false deductions or expenses claimed on tax returns.
  • Filing false returns. Taxpayers may file false or fraudulent tax returns, including claiming dependents who do not exist, misrepresenting filing status, or providing false information about income or expenses.
  • Employment tax evasion. Employers may intentionally misclassify employees as independent contractors to avoid paying employment taxes, such as Social Security and Medicare taxes.
  • Identity theft. Taxpayer identity theft occurs when someone uses another person’s identity to file a fraudulent tax return and claim a refund.
  • Failure to file taxes. Intentionally failing to file tax returns when required to do so is also a form of tax fraud.
