Tax Fraud and Tax Evasion Lawyers

South Carolina Tax Attorneys Defending Your Tax Fraud and Tax Evasion Charges

Tax fraud or tax evasion is not just a federal crime. In most cases, the offense or fraud involves a loss to or fraud on the Internal Revenue Service and the State of South Carolina. When the offense or fraud involves a loss to or fraud upon the State, the South Carolina Department of Revenue is the investigating agency. The I.R.S. investigates federal tax evasion. Our experienced  Workers Comp tax attorneys at the Strom Law Firm, L.L.C. can help with both jurisdictions.

Tax Fraud or Tax Evasion Involving the I.R.S.

One of the missions of The Internal Revenue Service (I.R.S.) is to detect and prosecute tax fraud and federal tax evasion. If you are under investigation or have been arrested for tax evasion, your personal and professional livelihood are at stake.

If you are charged with tax evasion the I.R.S. can:

  • seize your assets,
  • put you in jail,
  • prosecute family members,Tax Fraud
  • freeze your bank accounts,
  • shut down your business, and
  • garnish your wages.

The best tax fraud lawyers agree that a conviction for tax evasion can result in jail time and staggering fines and penalties. If you are under investigation or have been arrested for federal tax evasion, you must contact experienced federal tax fraud and tax evasion lawyers to help defend your tax case.

Common I.R.S. allegations include:

  • failure to pay, or underpayment of, personal or business income taxes,
  • failure to file personal or business taxes,
  • misrepresentation of income,
  • supporting deductions with fraudulent documentation,
  • reporting income paid to someone else,
  • hiding assets in an offshore bank account,
  • claiming deductions you are not eligible for, and
  • directing another to submit false information.

Rewards for Whistleblowers Reporting Tax Fraud

The I.R.S. Whistleblower Rewards Program, enacted by the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006, provides a substantial incentive for people to come forward and identify other persons, corporations and businesses, trusts, partnerships, or other entities that are underpaying their taxes in any way.    This program provides a substantial monetary incentive to reporting individuals awarding them up to 30 percent of the amount of tax, interest, and penalties ultimately collected by the I.R.S.

Being investigated by the S.C. Department of Revenue?

The Criminal Investigations Division (C.I.D.) is the South Carolina Department of Revenue’s primary criminal tax enforcement unit, and its function is to review alleged violations to the tax laws, to investigate those violations, and to recommend criminal prosecutions as warranted. Criminal and civil penalties, as well as damages, can be severe for failure to furnish or file a withholding statement or failure to file a return.  Also, there can be criminal penalties for individuals who give false information to an employer or attempts to willfully evade a tax imposed by the Department.

Our clients often tell us that they speak to investigators because they feel that they do not have anything to hide. If an investigator approaches you, contact a criminal tax attorney to discuss the best way to proceed.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
