California and Hawaii Taxpayers Struck by IRS Payroll Tax & Income Tax Problems Created by IRS Tax Evasion and Tax Avoidance Schemes.
Los Angeles – San Jose Tax Attorney: According to the Internal Revenue Service, lawyers from the IRS with the support of tax attorneys from DOJ announced that IRS has obtained civil injunctions against more than 100 tax promoters of illegal IRS tax avoidance schemes and fraudulent IRS tax return preparers in an ongoing crackdown that began in 2001.
Many of the illegal tax promoters targeted taxpayers in Los Angeles, Alhambra Burbank Carson Cerritos Downey El Monte Lawndale Lomita Long Beach Oakland Palmdale Pasadena Pomona San Jose Santa Monica Studio City Van Nuys West Los Angeles and Woodland Hills with income tax and payroll tax avoidance schemes. These taxpayers along with the tax promoters may receive IRS tax audit notice as part of the ongoing IRS tax investigation.
Many of the IRS Tax related injunctions, obtained in cooperation with the tax attorneys at Department of Justice, also order the IRS tax promoters to turn over taxpayer lists and to cease preparing IRS federal income tax returns for others.
Signaling a renewed fight against tax fraud and tax evasion, the IRS stepped up the use of injunctions to stop the tax evasion and tax fraud schemes designed to avoid income tax and payroll tax debt.
The IRS becomes aware of abusive tax promoters through a variety of means, including ongoing IRS tax audit, state of California tax audits,or referrals from external sources such as tax professionals.
The IRS is currently investigating more than 1,000 additional tax avoidance promoters for possible referral to the Justice Department and conducting individual and business tax audit on thousands of IRS tax scheme participants.
