Los Angeles Federal Defense Attorney

 

Los Angeles Tax Evasion Defense Lawyer

Tax evasion is a federal crime that results in excessive fines and possible prison time. Our defense lawyers understand the seriousness of this offense and we are available to help you if you are facing tax evasion charges.

Tax evasion involves failing to report income or claiming unauthorized deductions. If the government is suspicious of illegal tax activity, you may be subject to an IRS audit or a criminal tax investigation. Among the things investigated are your income tax, estate tax, and payroll tax.

To be found guilty of tax evasion, the burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you owed an additional substantial income tax in addition to what was declared in your tax return and that you knowingly and intentionally attempted to evade or avoid the tax.

As your attorney, we want to hear your side of the story and do everything we can to get you favorable results. Intention is key to the charge of tax evasion. The prosecution has to show that you had the actual intent to deceive the government. Our duty as your defense attorney is to assert any and all applicable defenses on your behalf.

If you are being charged with tax evasion, call the Hedding Law Firm and set up a free consultation. We want to hear your side of the story, gather all the details and circumstances, and start formulating a legal strategy that will be beneficial and favorable to your case.
