At one point, banking secrecy laws in traditional tax havens were considered to provide ample protections in concealing the identity of the account holder. Wealthy individuals, companies, partnerships and a variety of other entities utilized these secrecy laws to open accounts where millions of dollars of otherwise taxable income could be surreptitiously funneled away to a foreign jurisdiction. For decades, this was considered business as usual by some individuals and the continued viability of these tax evasion strategies was not seriously questioned.

While many people think that a criminal tax situation is something that cannot happen to them unless they had the intent to defraud the government, the truth is that criminal tax charges can be triggered by even a slight misstep. Mistakes on your taxes that are perceived as willful misstatements by an IRS agent, and accountant or tax preparer malpractice are but a couple of the common ways that well-meaning taxpayers find themselves facing serious criminal penalties including a federal prison sentence.

If you were to ask people about the things that they should do every single year, they are likely to mention visiting the doctor for a physical, taking their car in for preventative maintenance, and maybe even a tradition that the person spearheads every year. It is unlikely, however, the individual will mention their yearly duty to file and pay taxes. While taxes are due each and every year, they are typically something that we prefer not to dwell on, unless forced to. In fact, many people will not even consider taxes until days before the due date when the media is saturated with messages about tax filing. As tax attorneys we work to provide strategies that mitigate the risk or consequences of civil or criminal tax exposure. The simplest one is to file your tax return on time!
