Washington DC Tax Evasion Attorney
Tax evasion is a general term used to describe efforts by individuals, businesses, trusts and other entities to intentionally evade taxes by illegal means. Tax evasion usually entails a taxpayer's deliberately misrepresentation or hiding of the true state of their financial affairs to the IRS in order to artificially reduce tax liability. Tax evasion usually involves dishonest tax reporting techniques, such as declaring less income, profits or gains than actually earned; keeping two sets of books; hiding money in offshore accounts or overstating deductions.
