Criminal Tax Attorney
Our experienced criminal tax lawyers at Eaker Peréz have helped clients win cases against the IRS and state tax agencies when charged with criminal tax crimes, including tax evasion, failure to file, falsified taxes, and other serious criminal tax accusations. Criminal tax charges are a serious allegation that can result in huge tax debts, jail time, and loss of professional licenses.
At Eaker Peréz, our criminal tax lawyers work closely with clients to defend their rights and mitigate criminal tax penalties and incarceration with a unique combination of aggressive defense against charges and through understanding of our clients’ situations.
Being charged with a criminal tax crime can have a lasting impact on you, your family, and your personal life. The IRS is often aggressive and doesn’t stop until there is a conviction. They boast an impressive 80% incarceration rate for those who commit criminal tax crimes.
Having a criminal tax attorney ready to fight for you and someone you can trust is important when you’ve been audited, approached by special IRS agents, or suspect or know something in your return is wrong.
Tax preparers and CPAs are often high up on the list of witnesses that the IRS calls on—but an attorney-client privilege with your criminal tax defense attorney means you have someone on your side you can rely on to fight for you.

Has the IRS contacted you?
When the IRS finds an error on your tax filings, they will determine if the act was willful, meaning that you knowingly filed a false statement. The IRS may send an agent to your home or place of work unexpectedly.
Most investigations will begin with an audit from the IRS and then may advance to criminal charges. However, if you have been contacted by the IRS or know that you are being audited, it is important to act quickly. In some circumstances it may take time before the IRS proceeds with charges however, if they show up unexpectedly, you have the right to an attorney. Don’t wait too long before taking action.

How the IRS Proves Criminal Tax Crimes
The government uses a number of different methods to prove criminal tax crimes, including:
- Direct Evidence – Intentional errors on returns is one of the easiest, and fastest, ways the IRS can find evidence in a criminal tax case
- Net Worth – The government looks at the value of assets you own to see if it matches up with your tax returns, including property, bank accounts, and other factors in your net worth
- Lifestyle – IRS agents look into your lifestyle and expenditures to see if your spending habits and tax returns match up
- Bank Deposits – Tracking down where alleged fraudulent money is going is another method the IRS uses to convict tax crimes
The IRS is actively looking for any inconsistencies when investigating a criminal tax crime and may not always notify you of what they’re looking into. It’s not uncommon for IRS agents to follow those they think are committing tax crimes as part of an investigation, even before notifying the defendant. If there have been inconsistencies in your taxes, personal finances, or business accounts, contacting Eaker Peréz immediately can help your case even if you’re unsure you’re yet under investigation by the IRS.
Our criminal tax attorneys work with clients with complete discretion afforded by attorney-client privilege and support our clients throughout the criminal tax process.
