Filing fraudulent returns, statements or other documents is a violation of law as set forth in section 7207 of the Internal Revenue Code. Section 7207 is more fully described below.
Criminal charges such as charges of "fraudulent returns, statements or other documents" may be brought against a taxpayer in connection with any of the following:
• Individual income tax returns;
• Business income tax returns; and
• Any document signed under penalty of perjury and submitted to the IRS.
The Offices of David M. Garvin, P.A. has a proven track record and the experience necessary to properly represent clients who face criminal charges such as these. Our clients tend to be highly educated, successful and sophisticated. Many are referred to the law firm by their trusted advisors (CPAs, investment advisors and attorneys).
In many cases, an individual accused of submitting a fraudulent tax return based on falsified records faces broad charges on many counts. The charge of "fraudulent returns, statements or other documents" may appear to be redundant, overlapping with other similar, specific charges such as the following:
• Attempts to evade or defeat tax;
• Failure to file, supply information or pay tax;
• Fraud and false statement;
• Omnibus clause violations;
• Conspiracy to defraud the United States; and
• Tax money laundering.
Each charge is another tool that the IRS and Department of Justice may use. A criminal defense case involving such highly technical accusations is not typically an appropriate case for a general practitioner criminal defense lawyer. It is recommended that business owners, professionals and financial advisors who have been targeted by the IRS contact an attorney with extensive experience handling complex tax-related criminal defense and complicated tax controversies.
