Get the best advice when you make a mistake or you could go to prison!
I've seen it all as I approach my 20th year in the business. I never thought I would find out about a colleague going to prison for a mistake he made. It was a big mistake but he didn't have to go to prison over it. He chose to...
Will you go to prison? Have you ever done anything wrong but for the right reasons? (This post is long but true.)
An agent talked to me last year about my company's services. He passed on spending the dollar a day and now he is in prison. Did he have to go to prison? It could have been avoided if he just talked to an attorney.
This is serious now. Tax laws changed this year. Deductions changed significantly for the self-employed. This is your last opportunity to protect yourself from a simple mistake made by you or your accountant. If you have my membership now you are covered for 2018 tax returns for 50 hours of prepaid defense. Get it after the first and 2019 is covered for a one hour consultation but not the audit protection.
About a year ago he told me of a scenario. I remember pulling my car over in shock regarding what he was telling me. He did some things that were shortcuts that agents would know that are wrong but who would know. He wasn't really feeling like he was committing a crime. I knew he did. But since his intentions were not malicious he didn’t think a judge would see it that way. He thought it could go either way. It was clear he was in denial because he was a good man.
I remember telling him, "Get a lawyer, NOW! BUY YOUR WAY OUT OF THIS PROBLEM NOW OR YOU ARE GOING TO BE SCREWED!" He said that his company had an attorney that had been giving him advice. I shared with him that the company attorney is there for the company, not him. I said to at least get LegalShield for the $34.90/month that it is so he can go in and get a free consultation to determine how badly he screwed up.
He passed on that. In February of this year he was found guilty of forgery, theft and fraud. He was sentenced to three years in prison in April.
