Prohibited tax evasion tactics in Missouri

Tax evasion or tax fraud refers to the act of purposefully underpaying or not paying your taxes. Both tax evasion and fraud are illegal and penalized by the state of Missouri both criminally and organizationally. Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, P.C., understand the complexities of these issues and has helped countless clients craft compelling defenses in tax evasion cases and resolve matters in ways that minimize the potential consequences.

According to FindLaw, tax fraud and tax evasion are white collar crimes that come with lesser consequences than other white collar crimes. More often than not, courts charge both evasion and fraud as misdemeanors and set a fine as a punishment. The fine is usually the amount of unpaid taxes plus the expense to the state of Missouri to prosecute the crime. 

Tax evasion does not merely entail the underpayment or failure to pay taxes. FindLaw further details some of the more specific tax evasion activities. In addition to tax fraud and evasion, official misconduct, failure to give a tax list, false tax returns, double assessments for fraudulent listings, false certifications, neglecting tax collecting duties and sales and use tax violations are all considered "tax evasion tactics." These tactics come with their own penalties, which range from a $200 to $500 fine and 15 days in jail to up to one year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

Aggressive defense is necessary for obtaining a successful outcome to property theft charges. You can find more information regarding white collar crime charges and how to defend yourself against them on our web page.
