Civil and Criminal Tax Evasion

March 27, 2014

Jail and money

The difference between tax avoidance and tax evasion?  About 5-10 years in jail.

However, there is a big difference between civil and criminal tax evasion

Civil tax evasion adds penalties to the tax that you owe.

Criminal tax evasion means jail time plus penalties and restitution.

So the difference is money or time or both.  Not worth the risk.

The IRS has a job to do just like you and me. That job is to enforce the laws that Congress enacted.

So, be as aggressive as you are comfortable with.  Hire a tax professional.

But remember that pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered.
