Guarding Rights In Criminal Tax Investigations
The Internal Revenue Service employs special agents to conduct criminal investigations into potential tax fraud or tax evasion matters. When the IRS suspects that a business or individual has not properly complied with the tax laws, a civil or criminal investigation may be opened. At Kaspar & Lugay LLP, in Tiburon, California, we zealously guard the rights of clients who are under investigation for possible criminal tax violations.
Experienced In Guiding The IRS In Its Investigations
A criminal probe into your tax returns is a stressful experience. In an IRS tax audit, examiners are trained to gather as much information as possible. The agents will often attempt to use the tax audit structure to gain leverage against a taxpayer. Our knowledge of financial matters, combined with our business and tax law experience, is a valuable asset for our clients in protecting rights during an IRS criminal probe.
We approach each case from a global perspective. Partner Brent Kaspar is a certified public accountant with deep knowledge of the tax code. We apply that knowledge in evaluating the nature of IRS agent requests for information during a potential criminal investigation.
