Financial Chaos

Criminal Tax Matters

From the first day Stuart B. Ratner, P.C., opened more than a quarter of a century ago we have continuously been engaged in defending clients in criminal tax prosecutions. Our extensive tax law experience enables us to effectively represent clients faced with a criminal tax investigation conducted by the IRS Criminal Investigations Division, the Tax Division of the Department of Justice, or the local U.S. Attorney’s office. Stuart B. Ratner, P.C., has successfully represented many individuals under investigation for or accused of (i) failing to file tax returns, (ii) failing to report income, (iii) fraudulently overstating deductions, (iv) failing to collect and pay over employment taxes, (v) presenting false documents to the IRS, (vi) misappropriating sales tax and/or employment tax trust funds, (vii) structuring cash deposits to avoid cash transaction reporting requirements, (viii) making payments “off the books”, (ix) money laundering and check kiting, (x) conspiring to impede or obstruct the IRS, and (xi) many other tax-related crimes. We work tirelessly and use our experience and creativity to resolve tax issues before charges are filed and before investigations become public. Our thorough understanding of the tax code and wealth of experience enables us to obtain the most favorable outcome possible for our clients.
