Ontario Tax Evasion Lawyers
People accused of tax fraud are often surprised about how severe the consequences can be. In fact, some are surprised to learn that this is a crime, not merely an issue between them and the tax department. A conviction for tax evasion can lead to incarceration, not to mention a criminal record.
The law firm of Hicks Adams features a team of criminal defence lawyers with more than 100 years of combined experience. With us on your side, you can be confident that your case will be handled by an experienced lawyer who knows how to work with the tax department to mitigate the consequences of these major tax disputes.
Take Advantage of Protection Offered by the Lawyer/Client Relationship
It is important to remember that an accusation of tax evasion could lead to criminal charges, if it has not already. When you are accused of a crime, the things you say can be used against you. If you take your case to an accountant, there is no protection. The things you say to your accountant and the things your accountant learns can be used against you. Only when you enter into a lawyer/client relationship are you protected.
Working With the Canada Revenue Agency
We have extensive experience in this area. Our lawyers approach these cases by working with the tax department to negotiate a positive resolution whenever possible. For example, we may be able to avoid prosecution completely by paying unpaid taxes. We will cover all possible options to protect you from tax fraud charges. An acquittal is our primary objective.
