Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” says that when a tax preparer is charged with fraud the taxpayer is also implicated and should immediately seek counsel. St Genevieve, MO, May 12, 2015: Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” posted a new blog on the LANCE DRURY LAW website entitled “Was Your Tax Preparer Charged With Fraud?” where he discusses the responsibility of the taxpayer who may not be aware of the devastating impact. As Drury writes, “The ways of getting into IRS trouble seem endless.” He continues, “One way that often takes taxpayers by surprise is when the person who prepared their tax returns is indicted for fraud. It’s a guilt-by-association situation. All the individuals or businesses whose returns were filed by the preparer are immediately implicated in the fraud.” According to Drury, “A tax preparer faced with this kind of allegation will most certainly know they should retain experienced tax counsel. The tax-filer on the other hand, may not be aware of the impact and may hesitate to retain counsel.” Drury goes on to expound on the professionalism of most tax preparers. He writes, “It is important to understand that most of the professional CPAs, accountants and certified tax preparers are honest. The demands of meeting tax-filing deadlines requires that they be dedicated and hardworking.” He elaborates further, “Without exception the most important thing to a tax preparer is getting the best tax deal for their clients within the letter of the law.” The exceptions are what lead to trouble. As Drury says, “Some tax preparers may be too aggressive in making claims or may minimize income amounts in order to reap bigger returns for their clients. And, even more serious are when tax preparers fall into greedy behavior and blatantly steal their clients tax refunds or otherwise misuse their clients funds.” About Lance Drury Tax Attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R.
