Tax evasion allegations can seem overwhelming

Accusations of any type of criminal activity can have lasting effects on a person's life. If Massachusetts residents face charges for tax evasion, their situations can understandably seem overwhelming. Fortunately, parties in this type of predicament can defend against these allegations.

One man in another state will likely be hoping to find his best approach to his case after recently being taken into custody. According to reports, the man runs a bedding and furniture business and has allegedly underreported his total gross sales from 2017 through 2019. During that time, he purportedly reported over $432,000 in gross sales when the amount was over $907,000. As a result, the state Department of Revenue claims that he has evaded over $42,000 in sales tax.

The man is currently facing three counts of tax evasion. If the court convicts him of the charges, he could face up to five years in prison as well as financial penalties of $10,000 per count. At the time of the report, the man was still in custody.

When charges for tax evasion come against a person, it is important that the individual understands his or her defense options. Massachusetts residents facing such claims will undoubtedly want to gain reliable and applicable information regarding their legal rights and options in efforts to address their cases effectively. It may also be wise for parties in this type of predicament to enlist the help of experienced tax attorneys who can explain the situation and offer guidance on how to best defend against these and other tax-related allegations.
