Tax evasion and tax fraud offenses typically involve the non-reporting or under-reporting of income, sales, payroll and other taxes, as well as offenses stemming from tax returns. Both the state and federal government aggressively use criminal law to enforce tax violations — while also seeking public visibility to deter taxpayers from cheating.

Representation of a client accused of a tax crime involves a high degree of sophistication and attention to detail, which the tax crime attorneys at Willey & Chamberlain are uniquely qualified to provide. As with other white collar crimes, it is essential that an experienced attorney becomes involved as early as possible. Whether you are involved in an investigation for income tax fraud, sales tax evasion, or any other tax crime, trust our experienced tax crime defense lawyers to provide you with proactive and effective guidance and representation.

At Willey & Chamberlain, we remain committed to providing exceptional service in the defense of tax investigations and prosecutions, and we are respected by both the investigating agencies and the prosecutors for being effective and knowledgeable advocates in these matters. The depth of our experience in white collar criminal matters will ensure that your rights are protected during the investigation and that you develop a strategy which will be effective.

A tax investigation, whether by federal or state investigators, takes a long time, and often the client is able to take advantage of that time so that the scope of the problem can be defined, and often remedied, significantly reducing the client’s exposure. Sometimes the investigation starts as a civil audit, which develops information suggesting criminal violations. As soon as you suspect allegations of criminal wrongdoing, you should consult the criminal defense lawyers at Willey & Chamberlain. We are committed to providing exceptional service in the handling of tax matters.

If you have already been contacted by a taxing authority, such as agents of the Internal Revenue Service, the Michigan Department of Treasury or the Michigan State Police, call us immediately!

If you are facing charges for tax evasion, you need aggressive, effective and efficient representation dedicated to protecting your rights and interests at every stage of your case. The experienced tax crime attorneys at Willey & Chamberlain will effectively support you from the grand jury investigation through an appeal.
