Accounting & Tax Fraud Protecting Our Clients' Rights

Phoenix Accounting & Tax Fraud Lawyer

Accounting fraud involves manipulating financial statements to falsely represent a company's financial health, misleading investors, stakeholders, and regulatory agencies. A notorious example is the Enron scandal, which saw fraudulent accounting practices lead to the company's collapse and a shake-up in the financial world. 

Similarly, tax fraud entails providing false information on tax returns to avoid paying the full tax obligation. Underreporting income is a typical instance. 

These offenses can be committed at state and federal levels with focused investigations by well-funded agencies such as the FBI, the IRS, and Arizona’s Department of Revenue. The critical difference lies in the scope of their authority; while the IRS deals with violations of federal tax laws, state agencies handle breaches of state tax regulations.

Accounting and tax fraud cases are generally complex, involving comprehensive investigation, detailed evidence analysis, and intensive case preparation. They often call for expert witnesses, such as forensic accountants, tax specialists, and others, to clarify the facts.

Attorney Garvey understands the stress and uncertainty involved for clients and can walk you step by step through the legal process while protecting your rights and working for optimum results.
