Tax Fraud Defense Lawyer
Hampton Roads Criminal Attorney for White Collar Crimes
Paying taxes is a civil duty. Each year, individuals file state and federal taxes, pay dues and get their returns. To most people, taxes are not simple and understanding the various laws, exemptions and calculations can be very difficult. While most people do their best to file their taxes in a timely manner, sometimes errors occur.
When the IRS audits taxes, they are usually looking for simple penalties and collection of back-owed taxes; however, sometimes an audit can trigger an investigation and individuals who have made an honest mistake could be facing federal charges. At the Law Office of Shawn M. Cline, PC, we understand that this time in your life may be stressful, but if you were charged with tax fraud or tax evasion, we encourage you to immediately contact the Hampton Roads criminal defense attorney from our firm.

People who fail to file in a timely manner could be flagged as someone who is evading taxes. Also, simple mistakes like forgetting a W2, income form or exemption could look like an attempt to skirt around paying taxes. Laws governing payments, time structures and exemptions are strict and even a small mishap could lead to very serious complications.
