NC IRS audit CPA discusses IRS tax convictions

Gary Bode, CPA: if the IRS Criminal Investigation contacts you, call an attorney. But if you'd like a free initial phone consult on a tax audit issue, please call us at 399-2705.

The IRS itself is usually patient with taxpayers, often allowing months to resolve an issue.  Per their published chart below, the actual number of IRS criminal investigations is low.  And speaking as both a CPA and taxpayer, the folks they convict deserve it.  Here’s our post on convictions arising from IRS tax audits. And CI (Criminal Investigations) helps with the fight against terrorism, too, through their forensic accounting technologies.

While CPAs are the best professionals to handle IRS tax audits, you may need a good criminal attorney if IRS Special Agents, more commonly know as Criminal Investigator agents, contact you. The chart below shows that less than half of IRS criminal investigations end in convictions, but that over 80% of convictions result in prison sentences.  I imagine all convictions include fines and financial penalties.

How to Interpret Criminal Investigation Data

Since actions on a specific investigation may cross fiscal years, the data shown in cases initiated may not always represent the same universe of cases shown in other actions within the same fiscal year.

FY 2010 FY 2009 FY 2008
Investigations Initiated 4706 4121 3749
Prosecution Recommendations 3034 2570 2785
Information/Indictments 2645 2335 2547
Total Convictions 2184 2105 2144
Total Sentenced* 2172 2229 1957
Percent to Prison 81.5% 81.2% 80.9%

*Sentence includes confinement to federal prison, halfway house, home detention, or some combination thereof.

While I’m a Wilmington NC IRS audit CPA, our virtual office allows us to offer IRS resolution services to a wider geographical base. We have many posts discussing the IRS audit process, from the initial Notice, through the federal lien release.  This includes multiple articles delineating strategies on dealing with IRS audits.  Please read any of these to get a feel for our expertise and empathetic attitude.  Call (910) 399-2705 for a free initial phone consult.
