Course Description

When the Internal Revenue Service believes you have committed a tax crime, they may launch a criminal investigation against you. Typically, the IRS Special Agents will be tasked with conducting the investigation into your background, finances, and tax history to assess the damage. In recent years, with the service making foreign accounts compliance a key enforcement priority, taxpayers who have not properly disclosed offshore accounts, assets, investments and income are at a high risk. What would happen once the case is assigned to IRS Criminal Investigation Division? How does the division determine who should be prosecuted? The presenter will provide a bird’s eye view on the overall process.
