Understanding Tax Evasion Charges

Tax evasion refers to the crimes related to mandatory tax payments to the federal government. Each citizen is required to pay a certain amount in taxes depending on their earnings, their dependents, and several other factors. If someone avoids paying those taxes altogether, or if they underpay, they could face serious repercussions as a result.

Common forms of tax evasion include:

  • Pyramiding, or collecting taxes from employees but failing to relinquish those taxes to the IRS
  • Using company money to pay for personal expenses
  • Sham trusts
  • Employee leasing
  • Failure to collect employment taxes
  • Overstating tax deductions
  • Failure to report all income
  • Filing false documents

What Are the Consequences of a Tax Evasion Conviction?

Depending on the type of crime in question, the monetary loss, and other factors, the severity of the crime may vary, as will the consequences. The penalties for a conviction can vary but may include jail time or incarceration, as well as costly legal fines, probation, and a criminal record.
