IRS wants taxpayers to know that tax crimes do not pay

Heading into the frenzy of tax season, the IRS wants Massachusetts taxpayers to know that filing inaccurate returns or failing to make necessary disclosures may result in prosecution for tax evasion or other tax crimes. In addition to paying any unpaid taxes, penalties and fines, the IRS may aggressively pursue imprisonment of taxpayers that commit tax crimes.

Swiss financier faces charges of fraud

Tax experts in Massachusetts are watching a case that involves federal prosecutors charging a Swiss asset manager for tax evasion through offshore trust funds at numerous banks in Switzerland. The 52-year-old citizen of Switzerland could be sentenced to a maximum of five years in custody for the tax crimes. Authorities have charged him with engaging in fraud for at least 13 years and claim he worked with at least five financial institutions in his native country on the scheme.
