The IRS brings criminal charges in the Southern District of Florida and all over the country. Their attempts to do so are based on a policy of trying to be uniform in the charges that they bring.
Many years ago, I was an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of Florida and I prosecuted many of the criminal tax cases that were brought here. These are very serious charges; but unlike many other criminal charges the process is rather lengthy. So you almost always know well in advance that you’re under investigation.
The investigations can take two forms; one is administrative and the other is where they use a federal grand jury. These are very serious matters and it’s very important that as soon as you get any inclination that there may be any sort of inquiry or investigation that you see a lawyer that’s competent and experienced in these matters.See all videos
