Frequently Asked Questions about Tax Felonies in New Jersey

What are possible defenses against charges of tax fraud?

If you’ve been charged with tax fraud, it is important that you seek the representation of an experienced New Jersey tax felony defense attorney as soon as possible. An experienced attorney will begin building your defense right away. There are several possible defenses against charges of tax fraud. Some of the most commonly used defenses include: 

– That you made an honest mistake
 
It isn’t uncommon for people to make errors on their tax returns. Sometimes these errors are flagged as fraud by the IRS. Your attorney can argue that you made an honest mistake and present evidence to show that the action that was flagged as fraud was actually just a mistake. Your attorney will have to work hard to convince the judge and jury of your innocence. 

– That you were living off a nontaxable source 

Not all the income we receive is taxable. You may have been living off a non-taxable source of income such as an inheritance, gift, or loan. Your attorney will have to provide evidence to support this claim. 

– You were living off the cash you hoarded over time 

You may also use the defense that the money you were living off was your savings or money you hoarded over time. This may have been money set aside from income that you already paid tax on and chose to hide in a hole in your backyard or in a safe in your home. It could be money you were gifted or inherited and stored in your safe. The IRS is often suspicious of anyone that holds large sums of cash rather than placing it in an account. 

Will I know if I am being investigated for a tax crime?

In many instances, people being investigated for tax crimes are unaware that they are under investigation. That is until they are formally charged. The IRS is not under any legal obligation to inform you about the investigation but usually does. It is also possible for those under investigation to learn about the investigation from friends, family, or acquaintances contacted by the IRS during the investigation as they cannot be sworn to secrecy about the investigation.

If you suspect that you are under investigation for tax fraud, you can confirm it by inquiring if Form 4135 has been filed against your account. You should also contact an experienced New Jersey tax felony defense attorney to help you determine what to do next. Contact the Law Offices of Michele Finizio for a free consultation on your case.

Reviews Matter

“First class representation. Michele was my son’s attorney after he made a slight but bad decision that hurt no one, but one that potentially could have a caused a lifetime of employment problems in the future, despite having a four year college degree. First of all Michele was very proactive in protecting his rights. Rights we were not even aware of. She provided quick and reliable answers to our questions. Before we met with her our anxiety and worry was insatiable. The peace we felt after our first consultation alleviated all that and we knew we picked the right attorney. Her excellent negotiation skills resulted in a settling his case quickly and without conviction.

We owe a debt of gratitude for her service. I was shocked at how much she was able to do for my son. She is a solid lawyer who is honest and works to insure the best possible outcome for her client is achieved.”
