Tax Fraud: Legal Peril Ahead

Both the Illinois Department of Revenue and the federal IRS have departments specifically dedicated for investigating tax fraud for the purpose of pursuing criminal charges.  Don’t risk your freedom and expensive fines by trying to handle tax fraud charges on your own.  Penalties vary depending on the amount of tax that was allegedly underreported or evaded and can include hundreds of thousands in fines and anything from 30 days to many years of imprisonment.
