Law Experts and Tax Fraud

Postby Number Six » Wed Oct 22, 2008 12:47 am

Vincent Bugliosi, the former prosecutor, is doing a book tour around Vermont with the Progressive Party's candidate for attorney general. I asked him about the issue of tax non-filing and fraud, there was tax protestor there who brought up the Brown case. I mentioned that there is no statute of limitations on murder (his prosecutorial focus) and tax fraud. He, and the attorney general candidate, were unaware of the tax protest movement. I gave them the quatloos site as a reference when she asked for links to tax law enforcement.

There is no civil statute of limitations with respect to fraudulent (or unfiled) tax returns. There is a six year criminal statute of limitations for tax fraud (or willful failure to file returns).

Thank you. I hate when I hear people say, "the only two crimes with no statute of limitations are murder and tax fraud". It just ain't so.

Practically speaking it is unlikely that a tax issue beyond six years has relevance to the IRS except above a threshold of substantial income. The perjury statute is also rarely invoked in cases of CPA's and taxpayers. It would be interesting to know if data-mining programs are connecting the dots in the case of people who cash large checks at the banks of the payee. It should be pointed out that famous tps who have beat the criminal rap, have ended up being dismembered financially in other courts.
