This worksheet from the IRS may help define some terms about tax evasion and avoidance. According to the IRS, tax avoidance is a perfectly legal way to lessen your tax burden, while tax evasion is about deliberately underpaying your taxes. The difference between the two ideas is subtle. It’s a difference that a good lawyer can help bring to light in a tax evasion charge.
Many cases of tax evasion are the result of honest mistakes, but sometimes a zealous tax investigator just wants the win. To prove tax evasion, the IRS must show beyond a reasonable doubt that you attempted to not pay your taxes, that an additional tax was due and you acted willfully. The penalty could be up to three years in prison. It is vitally important that you find a good attorney if you learn you are being investigated or charged with tax evasion.
