Tax Fraud

Tax fraud cases are serious precisely because you’re dealing with the Maryland state taxing authority and the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The IRS cannot catch and prosecute everyone who may get themselves into trouble with income taxes, but it does take its collections job seriously. Because the IRS is serious about collecting unpaid taxes, it will bring substantial resources to bear in IRS audits and investigations in order to succeed.

And if the IRS audit uncovers evidence of tax fraud or evasion, you are likely to be subject to criminal prosecution. For that reason, if you are under investigation by the IRS or Maryland taxing authority, it makes sense to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates as soon as possible.
