What is Tax Fraud in New York?
As is the case with any other crime, the penalties you may face for tax fraud depend on the details of the situation.
According to New York State law, tax fraud includes the following:
- Not submitting a tax return or report
- Filing a fraudulent tax return or another document that contains false information
- Not paying taxes
- Not remitting or submitting a specific tax that is due to the State of New York
- Scheming to cheat the State of New York by making fraudulent representations related to a tax
Since this list is not exhaustive, it is crucial to consult with an experienced tax fraud attorney to fully understand your case and legal options.
Penalties for Tax Fraud
Depending on how much money was involved in your case, your crime may be treated as anything from a class A misdemeanor to a class B felony. Generally, tax fraud may be elevated to the level of a felony if two elements are present. First, there must be a specific intent to escape the payment of taxes or to cause fraud. Second, the total monetary harm must pass the cash ceiling of $3,000. Punishment for criminal tax fraud can include prison time and steep legal fines, especially for corporate defendants.
