Act Quickly to Protect Your Rights and Options
At some point, a civil tax investigation by the IRS can turn into a criminal tax investigation. If you have reason to believe that you may be the target of a criminal tax investigation by the IRS, or you have been told that you are the target of a grand jury investigation, you should obtain legal representation as soon as possible.
In many cases, cooperation, even by a target of an investigation, can enable a person to avoid an indictment and other negative consequences. In some cases, a framework of relief from the harm of criminal sentencing can result. The best approach is always to undertake a comprehensive and thorough defense effort from the moment that a hint of a charge of fraud in respect of tax obligations arises.
Theodore L. Craft will provide you with an objective and realistic evaluation of your legal options. Once you decide how you wish to proceed, Theodore L. Craft will begin to determine the best resolution of your criminal tax matter and to aggressively work towards achieving your goal.
Boston Sham Transaction Attorney
The IRS takes a dim view of transactions that have no business purpose other than serving to reduce taxes. People who, individually or through a business, engage in financial practices such as entering into and presenting tax results of sham transactions on income tax returns, orchestrate the receipt of constructive dividends, and participate in offshore tax shelters or maintain foreign accounts without adequate compliance with disclosure laws often face very serious civil penalties at best and criminal prosecution and conviction at worst.
If you have received a letter from the IRS, a phone call from an IRS agent or are in receipt of an IRS summons, you should not respond before talking with experienced tax defense lawyer Theodore L. Craft. Without representation, you may reveal what may appear to be innocuous information that binds you later and could expose you to significant civil tax liabilities or criminal charges.
