IRS Criminal Investigation serves the American public by investigating potential criminal violations of the Internal Revenue Code and related financial crimes in a manner that fosters confidence in the tax system and compliance with the law. It is surprisingly easy for a person to find oneself involved with this sort of IRS tax problems like Tax Evasion or Tax Fraud. Some of your clients might not be aware that anything had gone wrong until the IRS came looking for them. A criminal investigation differs from an audit. With an audit, the IRS attempts to determine whether you have calculated your tax liability correctly. With a criminal investigation, the IRS seeks to mount a case against you so that the U.S. Attorney’s Office can prosecute you.
When clients find themselves the target of an IRS criminal investigation, most taxpayers suddenly realize they need an attorney. How does the accountant respond when the client calls and says “I have a problem?”. However, one of the key players in defending the taxpayer will be the accountant who works in the background to help the defense recreate expenses, attack overzealous numbers from the IRS criminal investigation, and act as experts for the criminal defense. This program will explain the key roles played by accountants, the role of tax loss calculations in the case, and why many accountants realize that criminal cases are not only fascinating to work on but can be extremely lucrative engagements.
