What Constitutes Tax Fraud?
You may be facing tax fraud and/or evasion charges if you are accused of:
- Attempting to avoid paying taxes
- Falsifying tax returns and paperwork
- Failing to file the proper tax returns
- Consciously failing to pay taxes
- Defying a summons and refusing to provide information to the IRS
Representing Clients in State and Federal Court
Tax crimes can be prosecuted in State or Federal Court. If you are accused of violating state tax law, the case will be investigated by SLED or the South Carolina Department of Revenue and usually prosecuted by the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office. If you are accused of violating federal tax law, the case will be investigated by the IRS and prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office. With the variability in the types of courts, it is important to have an attorney who has a full understanding of all court processes. Sloan is highly knowledgeable of state and Federal court procedures and is flexible enough to amend a defense strategy if the charges move from one court to another.
