IRS Tax Investigations
An IRS tax investigation is the process by which the IRS looks into whether you have committed any crimes related to your taxes. Typically, such investigations only occur when the IRS has a good reason to believe you may have committed a tax crime. Such an investigation will likely have an impact on your life, even if you are innocent.
This is not the same as being audited. An audit merely checks whether your taxes are accurate without considering whether a discrepancy may be illegal or simply a mistake. However, an audit can lead to an investigation if there is evidence of evasion, fraud, or other such crimes. Furthermore, you won’t be investigated for simply being unable to pay your taxes provided that you file your returns unless the government suspects that your inability to pay is fraudulent or that you have committed some other crime.
IRS tax investigations are conducted by the Criminal Investigation Division. An investigation may last for several years and involve interviews of your friends, family, employers, bankers, associates, co-workers, and others. Criminal tax code violations can result in very serious consequences ranging from large fines to jail time. Plus, it can sometimes result in major financial, personal, and social struggles.
Regardless of whether you are innocent of any tax crimes, you should contact an IRS tax investigation lawyer immediately when you learn of an investigation. These processes are serious business.
