What is tax fraud?

Tax fraud is, as defined by the IRS, is "the willful and material submission of false statements or false documents in connection with an application and/or return." Tax fraud is a deliberate attempt to evade paying taxes to the IRS, and it is a federal crime. If you attempt to hold back taxes that you owe the government or fail to report a source of income, they will audit you and possibly prosecute you in federal court for tax fraud or tax evasion.

Examples of Tax Fraud

There are many practices that can lead to tax evasion criminal charges. Some of the most common are:

  • Deliberately omitting, or under-reporting, income
  • Deliberately failing to file a federal income tax return
  • Deliberately failing to pay taxes owed
  • preparing a false income tax return.
  • Deliberately avoiding disclosing offshore bank accounts
  • Concealing assets

What is the difference between tax evasion and tax avoidance?

Using legal methods such as tax-deductible donations to reduce taxable income constitutes tax avoidance. In the other hand, using illegal methods to avoid, or reduce, the payment of taxes, constitutes tax fraud.

Penalties for criminal tax fraud or tax evasion

Those convicted of tax fraud could face serious and long-lasting consequences. The penalties vary depending on the seriousness of the offense and the criminal history of the defendant. Among the penalties a person found guilty of tax evasion may face are:

  • A felony record
  • Up to 5 years in prison
  • Fines of up to $100,000 ($500,000 for corporations)
