Tax fraud is recognized when someone misrepresents something on their tax returns. Underreporting or adding tings onto your tax return that don’t actually apply to you would be considered a form of tax fraud and it is a punishable crime. There is a difference, however, between someone who made a mistake on their taxes as opposed to someone who willingly reported they made less income than what is stated on their return. Waitresses and others who work in fields where tips are required to be reported to the IRS sometimes claim they took in less because there is no actual proof of how much they made in tips. But the IRS has ways of monitoring this and will take action if an auditor finds your income tax return is suspicious.
Depending on serious your tax fraud crime is will determine what sort of action the IRS wishes to take. They could force you to pay civil fines or transfer your case to the IRS’s criminal investigation division. If you have recently learned that your tax return is being audited or you are being accused of tax fraud, now is the best time to procure a Utah tax attorney with the help USAttorneys can offer.
