What Are The Differences Between Tax Fraud And Tax Evasion?
Tax fraud and tax evasion are similar in that they both involve illegal activities that involve taxes. However, tax fraud is a more serious offense as it involves intentional misrepresentation or deceit on tax returns, while tax evasion is simply failing to pay taxes owed. Tax fraud can be both a civil and criminal offense, while tax evasion is typically criminal.
Common Examples Of Tax Fraud
Some common examples of tax fraud include intentionally underreporting income, claiming false deductions and not reporting income from offshore accounts. Other examples include using fake Social Security numbers, filing fake tax returns and failing to file tax returns altogether.
What Happens If You Are Accused Of Tax Fraud?
If you are facing tax fraud charges, you may face severe consequences, including fines, penalties, interest and even imprisonment. In addition to paying back taxes, you may also need to pay additional penalties and interest. If the IRS suspects you have committed tax fraud, they will conduct an audit or investigation to gather evidence.
