Tax Fraud and Tax Preparers

The Blanch Law Firm has experience representing ‘white collar’ criminal defendants in complex matters of securities and tax evasion. One of the most common defendants in criminal tax fraud cases is that of the return preparer – often a certified public accountant or other professional person who is compensated for their expertise in filing a tax return. Many times, whether from pressure to deliver for a demanding client or for their own gain, the professional may err when filing these returns or computing taxes owed, to their detriment.
