irs criminal tax: Criminal Payroll Tax Issues in New Haven, Connecticut - 05/07/16 07:32 AM
We focus on tax related issues, including civil and criminal tax controversies in New Haven and across Connecticut and New York.  At the latest American Bar Association Tax Section Meeting Acting Assistant Attorney General Caroline Ciraolo confirmed that the Department of Justice Tax Division and IRS Criminal Investigation will continue their combined crackdown on businesses and business owners who fail to properly account for and pay-over payroll tax dollars.  The message was as strong as that delivered last November at the New England IRS Representation Conference at Foxwoods Hotel & Casino by Ciraolo.  You can watch my interview of Caroline Ciraolo … (1 comments)

irs criminal tax: Dealing with an IRS 8300 Exam in Stamford, Connecticut - 06/08/13 07:03 AM
The focus of our practice is civil and criminal taxpayer representation, and whether in Stamford, Connecticut or elsewhere, the IRS is the best agency for collecting and handling financial information, and has therefore increased its focus on 8300 Exams in Stamford, Connecticut and elsewhere. 
When we represent taxpayers before the IRS or the Department of Justice Tax Division, we often have to explain the administrative powers the IRS examiners or criminal investigators have.  IRC § 6050I requires the filing of a form to report cash receipts in excess of $10,000 by any business.  It also makes it a violation for taxpayers … (0 comments)

irs criminal tax: The IRS & Bank Secrecy Act enforcement in Stamford, Connecticut - 06/08/13 05:38 AM
The focus of our practice is civil and criminal taxpayer representation, and whether in Stamford, Connecticut or elsewhere, the IRS has increased its focus on Bank Secrecy Act issues, and in particular has created three new types of agent:
The Abusive Tax Avoidance Transaction (“ATAT”) Agent – IRM 4.32 The Bank Secrecy Act (“BSA”) Examiner – IRM 4.26.6 The Special Enforcement Program (“SEP”) Agent – IRM 4.16.1.3 When we represent taxpayers before the IRS or the Department of Justice Tax Division, we are usually focused on income, expenses and tax loss.  Not so with these new agents.  The focus here has … (0 comments)

irs criminal tax: IRS Criminal Tax Prosecutions in Stamford, Connecticut: IRS Releases 2011 criminal Tax Enforcement data! - 03/27/12 01:02 PM
We frequently represent clients in federal IRS criminal tax investigations in Stamford, Connecticut.  In it worthy to note that the IRS released its 2011 statistical data today.
In 2011, the IRS Criminal Investigation Division initiated 4,720 criminal tax investigations.  Of those investigations initiated, 3,410 were referred for criminal prosecution.  These 4,720 cases included:
1,922 legal source crimes; 1,810 illegal source crimes; and 988 Narcotics-related financial crimes. When we handle these situations for taxpayers our focus is usually to try and have the criminal investigation killed and the case returned to the civil exam division.  The reason is that, the longer the … (1 comments)

irs criminal tax: IRS Exam Accountant Privilege Stamford CT: Why, if there are fraud issues with your tax return, your accountant may be your worst enemy during an IRS audit in Stamford, CT! - 02/25/12 10:08 AM
We frequently represent taxpayers before the IRS during routine audits in Stamford, Connecticut, as do many CPAs or EAs.  Having your CPA or EA handle your audit may be a costly mistake if there are potential tax fraud issues involved with the return.
Accountants, defined as anyone allowed to practice before the IRS (CPAs and EAs) enjoy a privileged relationship with their clients in routine tax matters.  Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) Section 7525 creates a confidential relationship for accountants similar to that of attorneys with their tax clients in civil tax matters.
Unlike the attorney-client privilege, the 7525 accountant-client privilege ceases … (2 comments)

irs criminal tax: IRS Tax Evasion Hartford, CT: IRS Shows Continued Progress on International Tax Evasion - 09/15/11 01:37 PM
We represent many taxpayers involved in criminal tax situations, including voluntary disclosure of foreign bank accounts.  Today the IRS released a notice that it continues to make strong progress in combating international tax evasion, with new details announced today showing the recently completed offshore voluntary disclosure initiative (OVDI) program pushed the total number of voluntary disclosures up to 30,000 since 2009. In all, 12,000 new applications came in from the 2011 offshore program that closed last week.
The IRS also announced today it has collected $2.2 billion so far from people who participated in the 2009 program, reflecting closures of about … (0 comments)

irs criminal tax: Hartford, CT Foreign Bank Account: IRS OVDI Deadline Extended to Sept. 9, 2011 - 08/28/11 09:08 AM
The 2011 OVDI was announced on Feb. 8, 2011, and follows the 2009 Offshore Disclosure Program (OVDP). The 2011 initiative offers clear benefits to encourage taxpayers to come forward rather than risk detection by the IRS. Taxpayers hiding assets offshore who do not come forward will face far higher penalties along with potential criminal charges.
Please contact me if you would like assistance in dealing with a foreign bank account.  This 2011 program may represent your final opportunity to come forward with the current reduced penalty regime.  If you have any questions regarding the IRS OVDI program in Hartford, Connecticut or any other … (0 comments)

irs criminal tax: IRS Criminal Payroll Tax prosecutions in Hartford, Connecticut: If you owe payroll taxes, beware: the IRS prosecution of employers is on the upswing. - 07/09/11 02:41 AM
<!--StartFragment-->
We frequently represent clients who owe significant sums of back payroll taxes, to the IRS.  For years it was rare to see a criminal prosecution for unpaid payroll taxes, but that is no longer the case.  We have seen a significant increase in IRS criminal prosecutions, and it appears payroll taxes are a new IRS Criminal Division priority.   
Internal Revenue Code Section 7202 makes it a crime for an employer to willfully fail to account for and pay over payroll taxes.  We always advise our clients in Hartford, Connecticut and elsewhere to take serious steps to resolving their outstanding … (1 comments)

irs criminal tax: IRS Criminal Prosecutions of Preparers Hartford, Connecticut: The IRS continues its focus on tax return preparers who assist clients with the filing of false tax returns. - 07/09/11 02:40 AM
<!--StartFragment-->
We frequently represent tax return preparers who find themselves the target of an IRS criminal investigation.  These issues often start when the IRS picks up on issues with a client or two, who without any other excuse point the finger at the tax preparer to deflect the blame from themselves.   
Internal Revenue Code Section 7206 makes it a crime for anyone to assist a taxpayer in the preparation and/or filing of a false tax return.  Internal Revenue Code Section 7201 for tax evasion is also an oft used weapon by the IRS, as defendants don’t have to be evading … (0 comments)

irs criminal tax: FBAR Prosecution Hartford CT: US department of Justice Announces HSBC India Client Indicted for Filing False Tax Returns and Failing to Report Foreign Bank Account - 07/09/11 02:39 AM
Our firm represents a significant number of taxpayers in Hartford, Connecticut and elsewhere who have foreign bank accounts and would like to come forward and resolve the matter with the IRS and/or Department of Justice.
I cannot stress the importance of coming forward prior to the August 31st deadline, as the current stream of prosecutions coming out now do not bode well for those folks holding out.
The Department of Justice just released its latest announcement of a prosecution coming from HSBC in India.  Dr. Arvind Ahuja of Greendale, Wis., was indicted today by a federal grand jury in Milwaukee on … (1 comments)

We frequently represent taxpayers having a difficult time paying their payroll tax obligations to the IRS.  In general these matters remain civil issues with the IRS and we help our clients resolve these matters either through installment agreements or by filing an offer in compromise.  However, there has been a significant … (2 comments)

<!--StartFragment--> We frequently represent taxpayers involved in IRS exams and IRS criminal tax cases in Hartford, Connecticut and elsewhere.  The Internal Revenue Code limits the IRS to assessing additional taxes against a taxpayer to 3 years, unless the taxpayer omitted gross income from its tax return equal to or greater than 25% of the gross income stated on the tax return.  In such a case of a 25% or more omission of gross income the statute of limitation to assess is expanded from the general 3 years to 6 years. 
In the recent case of Home Concrete & Supply LLC, the … (0 comments)
