Frequently Asked Questions about Tax Fraud in New Jersey

What should you do when charged with tax fraud?

The steps you take when you are charged with fraud will either make or break your case. It is therefore important to take the right steps and improve your chances of getting a favorable outcome. 

1. Seek the services of an experienced New Jersey tax fraud defense attorney

2. Preserve evidence 
It is important to begin gathering and preserving evidence right away. Search for all relevant records and documents and submit them to your attorney.

3. Cooperate 
Attorney Michele Finizio is an expert in tax laws. She will help you navigate the complexities of tax legislation and the litigation process. It is important to be honest and cooperative throughout the process. Work with your attorney to ensure a strong and consistent defense. Be patient as the process may take some time. However, trust that it is worth it to avoid criminal or other lesser charges and prison time.

How likely is it that I will be charged with tax fraud?

The truth is that the chances that you will be charged with tax fraud are minimal. The IRS simply does not have the resources to charge every taxpayer that they suspect of fraud. In fact, the IRS investigates less than 2 percent of all taxpayers in the country. Only 20 percent of these are charged and far less end up with criminal convictions. 

However, this does not mean that you can be complacent. The IRS comes down hard on those cases that it chooses to pursue. It is therefore even more important to have the best defense when you are charged with tax fraud. Contact the Law Offices of Michele Finizio for consultation and to start laying the foundation for your defense.

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.”
