Tax evasion includes multiple crimes:

  • Failing to report income (including hiding income in offshore accounts)
  • Misrepresenting or underreporting income
  • Taking inflated and unsubstantiated deductions (including an excessive charitable deduction or an unwarranted home office deduction

Even a relatively small income omission or excess deduction can cause the IRS to recommend that the taxpayer be charged with tax evasion.

Penalties for Tax Evasion

Tax evasion is a felony, and the criminal penalties can be severe. Taxpayers convicted of tax evasion may be imprisoned for up to five years, fined up to $100,000 ($500,000 in the case of a corporation), or both.

Even taxpayers with no prior criminal convictions may receive a prison sentence. In addition to criminal penalties for tax evasion, the IRS may also pursue costly civil tax fraud penalties.
