Convicted for tax EVASION? 

Tax fraud or evasion is the illegal and intentional avoidance of paying mandatory Federal or State taxes.

  • Evasion of Assessment – Affirmative act of filing a false tax return that omits income and/or claims deductions to which the taxpayer is not entitled.
  • Evasion of Payment – This offense generally occurs after the existence of a tax due and owing has been established. It is not necessary for the IRS to make a formal assessment of taxes owed and demand payment for tax evasion charges to be brought.


— A federal tax evasion conviction for an individual may be punishable by a $250,000 fine and up to 5 years in prison.

 A federal tax evasion conviction for a business is punishable by up to $500,000 in fines.

Lack of willfulness A defendant’s good faith belief that (s)he is not violating the tax laws, no matter how objectively unreasonable that belief may be, is a defense in a tax prosecution.

Advice of a lawyerIf the defendant received advice from a tax lawyer, a CPA, or another qualified tax professional, and that advice resulted in an IRS investigation or criminal charges, the defendant may have a viable defense.

Statute of Limitations There is a six (6) year limitation period for the offense of willfully attempting to evade or defeat any tax.

I highly recommend this law firm. They listened to us, put together a game plan and delivered. Because of them the Air Force will be in our future. They are a great group and I will be referring them to my friends and family if ever needed. Thank you all so much for all that your doing. ❤️

My son Markus and I had such an amazing experience with Mr Pillado. I highly recommend him and his staff. He was on it 24/7. I give him a 100 star review. Always on time and always giving it his all. He was able to drop a felony to a misdemeanor. Why because he was on it and getting all the facts. Best attorney ever. Thanks again Mr Pillado.
