If a taxing authority accuses you of under-reporting your taxes in any way, such as falsely reporting your earnings, inflating your expenses, or claiming undeserved deductions, then you may benefit from the services of a tax fraud attorney. A tax fraud attorney represents clients who the government claims have manipulated the system by paying too little tax, or no tax at all. You may be fined or even jailed for tax fraud; in fact, Richard Hatch, the first winner of the television show “Survivor,” was recently jailed for not paying federal taxes on his $1 million winnings.
