Tax Fraud Defense in New York City

Accused of tax fraud? Call a NYC criminal defense lawyer!

Did you know that about 1 in 99 individuals who earn less than $200,000 a year have a chance of being audited by the IRS? Most of the time, those who are accused of committing tax fraud tend to be those who earn a middle class wage.

You can be caught cheating on your taxes if you do any of the following:

  • Underreport income
  • Incorrectly claim tax credits
  • Earn "under the table money" but receive unemployment benefits
  • File a false insurance claim
  • Refuse to declare tips
  • Use a false social security number
  • Falsely claim someone as a dependent

If you have concerns that you might have made a mistake on your tax return or are charged with tax fraud, make sure you retain legal counsel right away. Most tax auditors understand the complex tax laws and are adept at recognizing when "mistakes" are actually fraud. That does not mean, however, that they will always get it right. Finding a knowledgeable New York City criminal defense lawyer should be your first step if you have been accused of any tax fraud crime.

Contact a New York City tax fraud lawyer from the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser today! We represent cases in Scarsdale, Westchester, Bronx, and Manhattan​.

Penalties for Tax Fraud in New York

Depending on the circumstances of the case, penalties can range from extensive fines by the IRS to felony charges on your record. For example, if you incorrectly claimed a tax credit, this does not merit a jail sentence. Being found guilty of intentionally deciding to commit tax fraud, however, could result in a felony, which can carry several years in prison and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.

We understand that you have much at stake if you have been charged with tax fraud. The IRS takes great measures to prove tax fraud guilt and has teams of very experienced legal professionals and investigators on their side. You need a legal team that can stand up against any argument. That is why you should call upon our firm to fight for you.
