Tax Evasion Archives

Understanding the serious nature of tax evasion accusations

Tax evasion accusations are serious and should not be taken lightly. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) performs criminal investigations and employs greater than 2,000 special agents to investigate complex tax crimes. When individuals intentionally refuse to file an income tax return, when one is required, or report incorrect information on a tax return, the behavior is considered fraudulent and may be considered a crime.

Tax avoidance is not the same as tax evasion

Tax evasion is a serious crime that can, if it results in conviction, lead an Illinois resident to spend many years in jail. It involves the willful avoidance of paying one's taxes through illegal means of concealment. However, every year many Americans make mistakes when they file the income tax returns and commit errors that may reduce their tax burdens. These errors must be corrected but generally do not constitute tax evasion. Tax avoidance is another type of issue all together that involves the proactive planning by an individual to legally lower their overall tax obligations.
