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 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’ eye view of the overall process. 

This online CPE webinar covers the following key topics:

  • How an IRS Criminal Investigation is originated.
  • Do you file an Amended Return during a Criminal Investigation of a Taxpayer?
  • How a Normal Civil Audit Becomes a Criminal Referral to the Criminal Investigation Division.
  • What is the IRS Criminal Investigation Division looking for to pursue a Case?
  • The Difference between Intent and a Mistake
  • A review of the IRM Part 9 that covers IRS Criminal Investigations.
  • What Techniques IRS Special Agents use to Interview “Targets” of their Investigations, Surprise Home Visits, etc.
  • Investigative Techniques to support their Criminal Referral to Dept of Justice, i.e. Direct and Indirect Methods of Proof.
  • Common defenses against IRS Accusations of Criminal Tax Fraud.
  • The difference between the Civil and Criminal Tax Computations.
  • Clients Rights to Conferences with the Government before Indictment.
  • The Role of the IRS Experts at Trial
  • The Role of the Defense Expert at Trial and the preparation for Effective Testimony
  • Computation of Tax Loss
  • The difference between Restitution, Fines and Civil Tax Due
  • Settling the Civil Tax Due After the Trial, regardless of Guilt or Innocence.
