Tax Professionals Get Raided by the IRS

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Recently, the Internal Revenue Service targeted and raided four tax preparer’s offices in North Carolina.   The offices prepared a large amount of suspected fraudulent tax refunds that were prepared for taxpayers for the 2011 tax year. The amount in tax refunds exceeded $3 million.  The tax preparers are guilty of excessively inflating their client’s incomes, as well as their number of dependents.  This was done illegally done to maximize the amounts that the customers received back from the IRS. The tax preparers charge their clients an extra fee for the inflated amount of money that they would receive from the IRS.

We want to notify you about this possible form of tax fraud done by tax preparers. 

Some of the tax preparer’s customers received thousands of dollars from their tax refund, without even working one day the previous year.  The four offices of the tax preparers in North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia were locked and vacated.  The IRS raided all of the tax preparer offices and they seized documents, computers, and cellphones. 
We want to inform you that this is illegal, even though the tax preparers pose it as a legit business.  However, if the IRS shuts down your business operations, there is still a tax liability.  It is important to realize that you can’t escape your tax liability with the federal government.  The best advice we have is to contact the Strategic Tax Lawyers in order to create a plan to settle the tax concern.  Otherwise, the IRS will begin its tax collection efforts sooner than you realize.  By contact a good and experienced tax attorney, such as the Strategic Tax Lawyers, you will be able to gain a strategy that will settle the tax debt.  If the debt will not be taken care of, it will pose a problem for you until it gets resolved.
