New Hampshire & Maine Lawyer for Tax Evasion

Federal Tax Crimes in New Hampshire & Maine

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) aggressively monitors individual and business tax returns to ensure that they are paying what they owe. If any party fails to file a tax return, evades tax obligations or fails to report income, the IRS may investigate and file federal criminal charges. Our team regularly defends charges for tax evasion, which is defined in 26 U.S.C. §7201 as "willfully [attempting] in any manner to evade or defeat any tax..." and is a felony punishable by a prison term of up to 5 years, a fine of up to $100,000 (or $500,000 for a corporation), or both.

In addition to these penalties, an individual can suffer penalties for each month they are late in filing their taxes, or for the remaining balance due. Any amount of taxes left unpaid over the years may be included on top of any other pecuniary penalties. If you have been wrongfully accused of evading taxes, or if you made an accidental mistake on your returns for one or more years, speak with a New Hampshire criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. An experienced attorney will have the knowledge and skill to present a strong argument in your defense.
