Brooklyn Tax Evasion Fraud Lawyers

By Spodek Law Group | January 22, 2023

Let’s dig into tax evasion. It’s a tricky, sticky business. Imagine you’re a baker. Now, when you bake an apple pie, you’re supposed to use apples, right? So, let’s say you’ve been using a combo of apples and some cheaper pears to cut costs. While your customers can’t tell the difference and are happy as can be, you very much know you’ve been skipping out on apples.

Tax evasion is sort of like that, my friend. It’s intentionally underpaying or failing to pay taxes when you very much know you should. To pin you down with such a charge, they need to see solid signs that you willfully slugged clear of the tax pathway.

Here’s the rub: tax evasion can lead to some serious to-do. I’m talking penalties of the first degree, penalties we at Spodek Law Group can help you maneuver.

Deciphering the Tax Code

Both Uncle Sam and the State of New York have laws to define tax evasion. These rules help figure out if someone actively ducked taxes or committed fraud by misleading the good ol’ taxman about how much they really made.

For instance, if you ‘willfully’ failed to file the necessary documents on time, the New York tax laws might dance the charge of tax evasion on your head. Likewise, if you knowingly skipped reporting revenue sources or claimed deductions you weren’t entitled to, you might be singing the tax evasion blues.

The Who’s Who of Tax Evasion

Now, any Tom, Dick, Harry, or even Big Corp. can land in a tax evasion pickle. This could be due to not reporting earnings or claiming allowances they aren’t eligible for, or even not withholding and reporting employee taxes accurately.

Trust funds can also take a blow if trust administrators goof up and don’t correctly report all income linked to the trust or fail to make payments by the due dates.

The Price to Pay for Tax Evasion

There are varying degrees of culpability in tax evasion cases ranging from misdemeanors to felonies. A tax evasion misdemeanor could be something like slightly modifying your tax returns to reduce your tax liability, while a felony charge of tax evasion could involve a structured and ongoing effort to alter your financial situation to lower your taxes.

Penalties can span the whole gamut from paying remaining taxes and late fees to even imprisonment, depending on the severity of the offense.

In such cases, it’s key to keep abreast with changes to tax evasion laws as what was once considered a misdemeanor could now be classified as a felony.

Tax Evasion Battles: Your Lawyer, Your Shield

Once you get a whiff of a possible tax glitch, beeline to a tax attorney such as the ones my firm, Spodek Law Group, offers. It’s crucial to pick apart your forms and all interactions with the tax agency with a legal magnifying glass.

The aim is to see if there are grounds for presenting any possible mistakes as innocent, without any intent for tax dodging. And remember, being charged with tax evasion can throw a wrench into your financial prospects for years to come. Securing an experienced/legal guide ensures your rights are protected whenever tax clouds gather.
