The thing about tax evasion is that the government has to prove that the taxpayers acts were willful. In other words, the government has to prove that a person intentionally and knowingly wanted to violate the tax laws.
Another thing they have to prove, or one of the other things you have to prove, is that there’s actually a tax doing and owing. So where do we go?
What we like to do is we like to, if you haven’t actually been indicted but you’ve learned your under investigation, we like to mirror or mimic the government’s investigation to try to poke holes in it before they can even bring charges.
If charges have been brought then we have to fast-forward everything we would have done before and start working on showing why the governments ability to prove that you had the intent to violate the law can’t be proven. Maybe we can prove that you actually don’t owe any income tax, which would defeat the tax evasion charge.See all videos
