The Department of Justice claims it will increase criminal and civil investigations in 2009, especially for non-filing, non-compliant individuals. With the tax filing deadline fast approaching, the IRS wants filers to keep filing, while also encouraging non-filers to “return” to the system.
If you have not filed income tax returns for 1 year or several, one thing you must do – hire an experienced criminal tax attorney. Whether there’s a civil audit, a collection inquiry, or no contact whatsoever, your case can be referred for criminal prosecution. When there is a possibility of affirmative acts of evasion or a history of not filing, the risk is greater.
