Criminal Tax Fraud in the Second Degree: NY Tax Law 1805

New York Tax Law § 1805 defines criminal tax fraud in the second degree as class C felony tax evasion. Tax fraud in the second degree includes tax fraud acts or underpayment of taxes in excess of $50,000. The penalties for not filing tax forms, incorrectly filing tax forms, falsifying tax forms, or not reporting some income are rigorous. Our multilingual New York City criminal defense lawyer knows how to help you with tax fraud issues. While the tax payer rights advocate can help you with filing requirements and legitimate errors, you’ll do better to contact our tax fraud criminal defense attorney.

Tax Fraud Criminal Defense Attorney

Our criminal defense attorney understands the criminal tax fraud in the second degree charge that you could face. If you challenge the tax department’s actions hoping to win, you may just give them more information to use against you. Our criminal defense attorneys appear on CNN, Fox News, and Fox Business. Our attorneys are quoted in U.S. News and U.S.A. Today. If our attorneys investigate and find a way to reduce the amount of your liability in a timely manner, you may be able to negotiate a payment plan without ever going through a criminal hearing. The New York Department of Taxation and Finance prosecutes tax crimes for the Internal Revenue Service, but you can be prosecuted by both the state and the federal government.

President Donald Trump

The days of pocketing hundreds of dollars on a sale and writing less than the cost on the receipt or car title to reduce the tax owed are over. The Internet brought real-time processing and synchronization which reveal tax fraud and counterfeiting with clarity. New York’s Department of Taxation and Finance is investigating information published in The New York Times which describes numerous tax fraud schemes devised by Donald Trump before he became president.

New York Department of Taxation

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance tax service website clarifies filing requirements. The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance also clarifies the penalties for failures to timely file tax returns. For example: selling products without a certificate of authority results in a fine of up to $10,000. The State of New York expects tax revenue from:

• Individuals
• Businesses
• Property owners
• Tax preparers
• Municipal governments
• Sales tax

Tax Fraud Acts

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance makes it easy to report tax fraud, evasion, schemes, and identity theft which defraud the state of New York. The tax fraud acts explained in New York Tax Law § 1801 include:

• deliberately failing to file or sign a tax return
• submitting false information on a tax return
• omitting material information on a tax return
• scheming to commit tax fraud or evasion
• failing to pay taxes
• issuing false certificates, titles, or exemptions
• counterfeiting currency or credit cards

Warrants, Tax Liens, Seizures

If you owe more than $10,000 in unpaid taxes, the IRS can file tax liens on your property. If you made the same mistake year after year and can’t begin to pay the penalties for what you did not realize was tax fraud, our criminal defense attorney can help you. The Department of Taxation can take 10% of your wages until your tax debt is paid. Consult our tax fraud criminal defense attorney before your tax fraud problems affect your entire life. A tax warrantis a summons to a legal action which results in a tax lien against your real estate. Working with the IRS and the Department of Taxation to earnestly solve your tax problems is the best way to avoid tax liens and seizure of your property.
