Each year, Special Agents from IRS Criminal Investigation launch thousands of criminal investigations. The vast majority of these investigations lead to prosecution—where taxpayers face serious risk of conviction. State and local enforcement, such as the Ohio Department of Taxation's Criminal Investigations Division, may enter the fray as well. Tax-fraud convictions can cripple reputations and expose individuals to lengthy prison sentences and substantial fines.
At The Chandra Law Firm LLC in Cleveland, our white-collar criminal-defense attorneys leverage their experience to create defense strategies for each client's situation.
