Tax Fraud cases have been steadily on the rise. More and more individuals and businesses have been under investigation for Tax Fraud in recent years, and that trend is continuing. The State and Federal Government have brought an increasing amount of Tax Fraud cases including for failure to file tax returns, under reporting income, and tax evasion. Likewise local businesses have been under intense scrutiny by the government investigating for such crimes as sales tax fraud, property tax fraud, under reporting income and tax evasion.

The insurance industry has also taken a hard line on Fraud as well. Insurance Companies now routinely investigate individuals who make claims pursuant to their policies. Any act taken with information of producing a fraudulent result will often result in a criminal investigation and possible criminal consequences. Insurance Companies are conducting more and more investigations into claims seeking to establish fraud in an effort not to pay a claim. These investigations typically scrutinize allegations made by a claimant as either false or exaggerated.

The penalties for Fraud are serious and require skilled and experienced attorneys to defend the accused rights.
