    Need a Criminal Tax Defense Attorney in Phoenix?

    Our dual-licensed Phoenix Criminal Tax Defense Attorneys & CPAs excel at representing clients in IRS tax audits, especially when they have blatantly cheated on the return under audit and thus fear criminal tax prosecution. To date, we have never had an audit client criminally prosecuted for tax crimes. When facing a federal tax audit from agencies like the IRS, certain red flags, such as destroyed records, underreported income, or unfiled returns, can intensify their examination. If an IRS auditor detects badges of fraud and thus suspects tax evasion, the case can be referred to the often clandestine Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS (IRS-CI).

    With nearly three decades of expertise, our team can identify and manage high-risk “eggshell audits” where the examined return contains significant misinformation. We understand the gravity of potential tax charges stemming from intentional tax evasion, fraudulent withholding, or false statements and the associated heavy fines and potential prison sentences. Our proactive approach protects our clients from civil and exponentially severe criminal tax penalties. If you’re concerned about a federal tax audit leading to criminal tax charges, our award-winning Phoenix Criminal Tax Defense Attorneys & CPAs are here to provide aggressive, informed representation in areas including:

    Facing Tax Controversies in Phoenix?

    At the Tax Law Offices of David W. Klasing, our dual-licensed Phoenix Tax Litigation Attorneys and CPAs are dedicated to providing unparalleled representation in federal IRS tax disputes. To date, we have never lost in tax court. We won’t take your case if we don’t believe we’ll win. By filing a tax court petition, there’s a 90% chance of bettering your situation significantly when tax penalties and interest reduction substantially exceed litigation costs. Our approach involves two bites at the apple: first with appeals and then with IRS chief counsel’s office on the courthouse steps. We’ve never stepped foot in tax court, sparing our clients the most expensive part of tax litigation. Having a 98% settlement rate, the IRS typically seeks to avoid tax litigation just as much as you’d want to.

    Tax controversies often arise when a federal tax agency, such as the IRS, believes a tax is owed, and a taxpayer or company disagrees. Conversely, disputes can also emerge when taxpayers believe they are owed a refund. Whether you’re facing criminal tax exposure, need guidance on a civil tax audit, eggshell audit, reverse eggshell audit, or are under a criminal tax investigation, having a seasoned Phoenix dual-licensed Tax Litigation Attorney and CPA by your side is invaluable. Our commitment to delivering personalized and effective representation to our clients sets us apart in the industry. We specialize in disputes arising in:

    Need Help with Getting Back into Tax Compliance without Facing Criminal Tax Prosecution?

    Our dual-licensed Phoenix Voluntary Disclosure Attorneys and CPAs offer experienced guidance through the IRS Voluntary Disclosure Practice (VDP). This service is crucial for taxpayers who have willfully/fraudulently avoided tax obligations, as it provides a structured & protected way to come clean and avoid criminal tax prosecution. We will assist you in making truthful, complete, and timely disclosures to the IRS, which includes arranging payment for owed taxes, interest, and penalties and cooperating with the IRS to determine the correct tax liability in what basically amounts to a federal tax amnesty program for those who qualify.

    Moreover, we navigate the complexities of various voluntary disclosures, including domestic and offshore voluntary disclosures, streamlined procedures, and delinquent FBAR and international information return submission procedures. As long as a taxpayer who has willfully committed tax avoidance (potentially including non-filed foreign information returns coupled with affirmative evasion of U.S. income tax on offshore income) self-reports the federal tax non-compliance through a domestic or offshore voluntary disclosure before the IRS has started an audit or criminal tax investigation/prosecution, the taxpayer can ordinarily be successfully brought back into tax compliance and receive a nearly guaranteed pass on criminal tax prosecution and simultaneously often receive a break on the civil penalties that would otherwise apply. We deal with:

    Struggling with Cryptocurrency Taxation Issues in Phoenix?

    In the rapidly evolving world of virtual currencies like Bitcoin and other digital assets, many investors and traders are navigating complex Federal tax implications. Receiving a letter from the IRS about unreported cryptocurrency transactions can be alarming. It may lead to a high-risk eggshell audit or even a covert criminal tax investigation if not addressed appropriately. The shock is palpable for many when they discover that exchanges of one type of crypto for another are taxable events or that the IRS might have obtained their transaction details from sources like Coinbase. The volatile nature of the crypto market, with its significant highs in 2017 followed by subsequent lows, has left many with substantial tax liabilities, often disproportionate to their current portfolio value.

    Our Phoenix Bitcoin and Virtual Currency Tax Attorneys & CPAs have extensive experience in all facets of cryptocurrency, from understanding the nuances of airdrops to addressing challenges faced by individuals whose crypto was held with a brokerage that has since folded. The exposure is even more significant for those who’ve ventured offshore with cryptocurrency. However, there’s a silver lining: taxpayers who’ve inadvertently committed tax discrepancies can often self-report through voluntary disclosure, potentially avoiding criminal tax prosecution and benefiting from reduced civil tax penalties. Whether you’re dealing with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, or any other virtual currency, call us today at (602) 975-0296 or schedule a reduced-rate initial consultation here, and we will successfully guide you through the record-keeping and reporting procedures required to file a tax return.
