Criminal Tax Attorney
It can happen to anybody. An innocent mistake is made and the next thing you know, you find yourself the target of a criminal tax investigation looking for a criminal tax attorney. Everything youâ€™ve worked for is in jeopardy and you could find yourself facing jail time.
The most important question youâ€™ll have to answer is what kind of attorney to hire. Who will have the know-how to help you best defend yourself? Itâ€™s important to understand your optionsÂ at this stage so you can make the best choice.
When it comes to choosing a defense attorney there are two types. White collar defense attorneys who are experienced with and deal with all areas of criminal law, or criminal tax attorneys thatÂ deal exclusively with criminal tax prosecutionsÂ as well as tax audits and complex tax issues.
Itâ€™s important to understand the differences between the two practices. When it comes to possible persecution for every day tax matters, white collar defense attorneys will almost always deal with the local U-S Attorneyâ€™s office to settle legal matters. In contrast, prosecutorial decisions regarding criminal tax cases are handled through the tax division of the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. While white collar attorneys deal with local counsel, they typically often lack experience dealing with attorneys on the national level, which puts them at a disadvantage in all areas of the case.
Additionally, the important part of criminal tax cases is the tax loss. Itâ€™s imperative that the attorney you choose for this matter be well-versed in all areas of criminal tax law as well as very versed in tax law in order to determine the lowest tax loss.
