Often those in Missouri and across the country who make a great deal of money have people who help them manage it, including preparing and filing their tax returns for them. Unfortunately, even with oversight, mistakes can be made. In fact, actor Terrence Howard and his ex-wife are now reportedly under investigation for tax evasion, though the details of the suspicions about them are unclear.
Though Howard and Mira Pak divorced in 2015, reports indicate that they have since rekindled their romance and became engaged in Dec. 2018. They reportedly became aware of the investigation against them in May. The suspicions are said to surround Universal Bridges Inc., a company that Pak is believed to own.
Despite the reports, a representative from the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to confirm or deny whether such an investigation exists. However, Howard has reportedly sought legal guidance and underwent “initial discussions” with federal investigators. Howard has previously been the subject of both federal and state tax liens.
Regardless of what a person does for a living, accusations of tax evasion are serious and can carry significant complications. As a result, those suspected of such action often want an attorney with experience with such cases on their side at the earliest stage of the investigation. This includes during initial conversations with investigators, even if criminal charges have not been filed. People in Missouri who have found themselves in a similar situation as Howard and Pak often feel more confident in their ability to make the decisions that could potentially have a significant impact on the rest of their lives with an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting on their behalf.
