Counterfeit Tax Stamps

Crimes Involving Counterfeit Tax Stamps

NYC White Collar Criminal Lawyer

In the state of New York, a tax stamp is used to collect taxes on specific items such as alcoholic drinks, medication, drugs, tobacco, cigarettes, playing cards and firearm registration, just to name a few. Due to the fact that these stamps are government issued, creating a falsified tax stamp is considered a serious offense to New York City law.

The cases regarding counterfeit tax stamps are generally held in federal court, and bear very serious consequences. Currently, NYC has seen many instances of counterfeit cigarettes with counterfeit tax stamps on them for the alleged buyers to avoid paying high taxes. The charges revolving around counterfeit cigarettes and tax stamps can result in accusations of conspiracy and federal charges.
