The reality of tax investigations

How the tax investigation targets you – with us, you’ll stay safe

The tax investigation department has various means of gaining knowledge about potentially illegal tax violations. Through control notices, company audits, “tax evader CDs,” or tips from third parties, the tax investigation department can be alerted to alleged crimes. In addition, customs authorities can also provide information about possible tax violations to the tax authorities. This knowledge allows the tax investigation department to conduct targeted investigations.

Investigations and searches

Consultation is essential

During an investigation, the accused may be subject to extensive measures by tax investigators which may even include the search of private or business premises and the confiscation of items and business documents. Handling such situations properly, ideally through the guidance of a tax defense attorney, is of the utmost importance.

Dealing with threats of punishment

Knowing what is at stake

The possible penalties for violations against the tax code are significant. They range from fines to imprisonment, especially in cases of severe tax evasion. Even attempting tax evasion is punishable by law. Therefore, it is important to understand the seriousness of such an accusation and to defend oneself accordingly.

Understanding when tax evasion occurs

Knowing when you’re treading on thin ice

Tax evasion can arise from active behavior or omission. Once there are signs of tax evasion, the tax authority initiates criminal proceedings. Knowing when you are in danger is the first step in avoiding penalties.

What to do if a voluntary disclosure fails

Mistakes happen – it’s all about how you react to them

Even minor errors in a voluntary disclosure can lead to serious consequences. If a voluntary disclosure fails, it is essential to immediately hire an experienced lawyer for defense. A well-thought-out defense strategy can significantly reduce the severity of the sentence.

Consequences of a conviction for tax evasion

Do you understand the risk?

For tax evasion, both monetary fines and imprisonment are possible consequences. In particularly severe cases, the punishment can even be up to ten years. However, much also depends on the chosen defense strategy. It is crucial to understand the risks and defend oneself appropriately.
