Criminal Tax Law
IRS CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS AND INDICTMENTS ARE SERIOUS MATTERS
A criminal tax investigation is a serious matter. When the IRS suspects that an individual or business has committed a tax or financial crime, the special agents in the IRS Criminal Investigation Division will launch an aggressive and far-reaching investigation of the matter. The Criminal Investigation (CI) Division serves as the law enforcement branch of the IRS. The IRS CI special agents are expertly trained financial investigators who combine their extensive accounting and law enforcement skills to uncover criminal violations of the Internal Revenue Code as well as money laundering and bank secrecy act violations. These agents are responsible for investigating a broad range of criminal activities, including income tax evasion, failure to file, white-collar crimes, undisclosed offshore bank accounts, employment tax fraud, health care fraud and narcotics-related financial crimes.
