Fighting The IRS In Tax Fraud Cases
If you’re hearing from the IRS and it’s not refund season, you need to hire a tax fraud attorney in Los Angeles right away.
Even with budget cuts in recent years, the IRS has still managed to audit over a million Americans per year. Many of these individuals are far from hardened criminals, but the massive bureaucracy of the IRS doesn’t much care.
You need a tax fraud attorney who does care!
At The Mattern Law Firm, we don’t take a monolithic view of tax fraud like the IRS does. Instead, we recognize that each accused person is an individual with their own specific story to tell. As your tax fraud attorney in Los Angeles CA, we will work hard to secure the evidence necessary to help you tell your side of that story and fight back against any criminal charges that may result from an IRS investigation.
We Understand Financial Crime Cases
Many types of white collar crimes involve complex evidence including bank records and other financial documentation. Obviously in a federal tax fraud case, the prosecutor is going to be an expert in this kind of evidence.
Don’t you want to make sure your defense attorney has extensive experience in representing tax fraud clients?
It is very important that your tax fraud lawyer understands the evidence that the prosecution has against you in order to provide accurate advice about your position and the advisability of seeking a plea or going to trial. At The Mattern Law Firm, we have the skills and experience needed to understand and evaluate highly technical evidence related to all kinds of tax fraud crimes such as:
- Tax evasion
- Filing a false return
- Assisting in the preparation of false returns
- Business and sales tax fraud
- Offshore tax havens

What If I Just Pay The Taxes I Owe?
In some cases, this could be a good strategy for evading prosecution. However, you would need to act quickly and agree to repay the money allegedly withheld by fraud before formal charges are filed, since it is very difficult for federal prosecutors to offer deals after an indictment.
