What is tax evasion?

Tax forms can be extremely confusing and it is all too easy to make a mistake. However, as most residents of South Carolina know, such an error can be costly. It is vital to thoroughly check all tax documents before submitting them as an error could be interpreted as an attempt at defrauding the tax office if it is detected. Before you know it, you could be faced with serious criminal charges and an uncertain future.

Tax evasion is considered a form of white collar crime and can be carried out by businesses as well as individuals and the penalties associated with this offense can be severe. There are several ways in which tax evasion can occur, such as submitting incorrect information on your tax forms, or failing to file at all.

Similarly, as this article on white collar crimes suggests, if you have transferred property without following the correct legal procedures, you might be seen to be attempting to escape your tax obligations for that property. There are many reasons you might be accused of tax evasion, so it is vital to keep your records in order and try to avoid mistakes.

It can be difficult to prove that an error in your tax filings was not intentional or fraudulent and if you have been charged with a tax crime, you may be wondering where to turn. The legal system can be extremely complicated to navigate alone, but fortunately there is help available. An attorney may be able to offer the support you need as your work to build your defense and protect your reputation.
