Any organization or individual with U.S. tax obligations is subject to audit and investigation by the IRS — and any contact from the IRS Criminal Investigation Division (CID) or another government agency must be taken seriously. Penalties can be severe, including massive fines and penalties, and prison time for those found culpable. Your need for a qualified lawyer to analyze your situation is especially critical given that communications with your CPA or other accountant are not protected under the law.
The incredible complexities of the U.S. Tax Code are a major concern for organizations engaged in complex transactions. You may find your company facing felony allegations of tax fraud, tax evasion, sales or payroll tax fraud, failure to file returns, and ultimately other criminal charges, including RICO violations.
