U.S. Government Continues to Pursue Taxpayers Committing Tax Fraud


As we have reported in past years the U.S. government actively pursues taxpayers that are committing tax fraud.  The Justice Department publicizes its successes in its press releases.  The press releases continue to demonstrate an impressive list of tax-related convictions, guilty pleas, injunctions, summonses, and other actions against taxpayers (and tax preparers).  Many of the tax fraud schemes include offshore activities. See, for instance:

California Resident Convicted Of Tax Crimes

Connecticut Resident Sentenced to Prison for Concealing Assets in Swiss Accounts
