The IRS Criminal Investigation Division (CID) obtains evidence from audits, informants, summons, search warrants and other methods in order for the government's lawyers to build a criminal case against a taxpayer.  If you are contacted by CID, it is in your interest to speak with an Atlanta defense lawyer immediately.

The government has the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the taxpayer is guilty of the charges that it asserts.  Therefore, all rights and privileges should be aggressively protected to prevent incriminating evidence from being used against the taxpayer at trial. Since the jury can only hear admissible evidence, all incriminating evidence should be argued that it is inadmissible due to the violation of taxpayers' rights or privileges.

During any criminal tax investigation, your constitutional rights must be vigorously protected.  To speak with an experienced Atlanta criminal defense attorney about your tax case, contact our law firm for a free consultation.
