Many individuals throughout the United States have become victims in abusive offshore tax schemes of one way or another. Usually, the Internal Revenue Service has issued notice stating that the individual has been identified in such a scheme, and asking for that individual’s help in an investigation into their activities.
The greatest mistake that an individual can make is to underestimate the severity of such issues. In any offshore tax investigative scenario, or criminal tax investigation in general, it is extremely crucial not to speak to a special agent of the Internal Revenue Service without first speaking with a tax law attorney. A tax law attorney has a total comprehension of substantive and procedural criminal tax law and will be fighting in your corner through the entire process. If someone from the Internal Revenue Service has been attempting to make contact with you regarding an overseas tax shelter matter, contact our taxation lawyers immediately.

Often, when an individual may be informed that he or she is a target of a criminal tax investigation relating to an overseas tax shelter, that individual has been a victim of an dishonest promoter marketing what the Internal Revenue Service sees as nothing more than illegal activity. When you are an innocent participant in something that you did not realize an unlawful tax scheme, it is important to hire a taxation law attorney to ensure your rights and freedom are protected.
