Being convicted for tax fraud in New Jersey may result in years behind bars. A tax fraud conviction may also lead to huge penalties and fines, and a business owner may watch his or her business become disrupted or close down entirely. An attorney, however, may help those accused of tax fraud to assertively defend themselves against these allegations, and the sooner one can secure defense counsel, the better.
Tax fraud cases may involve state, federal or FBI investigations or even charges of failing to report income or earnings. Other cases of tax fraud include charges of sales and payroll tax fraud. Sometimes tax fraud is actually a corollary charge to a separate investigation, or charges of tax fraud may be related to charges of money laundering.
