IRS Tax Investigation Overview
The General Fraud Program is Criminal Investigation (CI)’s largest enforcement program encompassing a wide variety of investigations involving tax and money laundering crimes. This program includes investigations involving a broad spectrum of individuals and industries from all facets of the economy, from small business owners to self-employed to wage earning taxpayers. General Tax Fraud cases constitute the main component of CI’s efforts to influence taxpayer compliance most directly with the Internal Revenue Code.
IRS Criminal Investigation (CI) comprises employees some of whom special agents whose investigative jurisdiction includes tax, money laundering and Bank Secrecy Act laws. While other federal agencies also have investigative jurisdiction for money laundering and some bank secrecy act violations, the IRS is the only federal agency that can investigate potential criminal violations of the Internal Revenue Code.
Compliance with the tax laws in the United States relies heavily on self-assessments of what tax is owed. This is called voluntary compliance. When individuals and corporations make deliberate decisions to not comply with the law, they face the possibility of a civil audit or criminal investigation which could result in prosecution and possible jail time.
Publicity of these convictions provides a deterrent effect that enhances voluntary compliance. As financial investigators, CI special agents fill a unique niche in the federal law enforcement community. Today’s sophisticated schemes to defraud the government demand the analytical ability of financial investigators to wade through complex paper and computerized financial records.
Due to the increased use of automation for financial records, CI special agents are trained to recover computer evidence. Along with their financial investigative skills, special agents use specialized forensic technology to recover financial data that may have been encrypted, password protected, or hidden by other electronic means.
Criminal Investigation’s conviction rate is one of the highest in federal law enforcement. Not only do the courts hand down substantial prison sentences, but those convicted must also pay fines, civil taxes, and penalties. If confronted with a present or potential fraud case, make sure to retain the services of a Tax Lawyer to protect your legal rights.
