What are Tax Prosecutions?
Benjamin Franklin once quipped: "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."
Tax fraud and evasion investigations and prosecutions should be taken extremely seriously. Tax prosecutions, should you be found guilty, can result in very heavy monetary penalties, a criminal record and in some cases a jail sentence.
The Income Tax Act is one of the larger, more elaborate areas of the law. As a result, individuals facing a tax prosecution should enlist the assistance of a law firm with in depth knowledge of tax law, as well as experience in the defence of criminal law. In cases such as these, knowledge of the Income Tax Act and the Criminal Code is required.
We have the experience, track record and resources to take on such cases. Whether the case is at the beginning of an investigation with the Canada Revenue Agency or after charges are laid, Caramanna, Friedberg LLP can provide comprehensive advice and passionate advocacy.
