Caroline D. Ciraolo Co-chaired And Moderated “Identifying The Line Between Avoidance And Evasion: Global Criminal Tax Enforcement” At The 19th Annual U.S. And Europe Tax Practice Trends Conference

Whistleblowers, data leaks, and cooperators have brought allegations of criminal tax violations the forefront and countries around the world are facing increased pressure to take aggressive action, hold those involved accountable, and recover lost revenue.

Using cases ripped from the headlines, the panelists discussed the current state of criminal tax enforcement in their respective jurisdictions, including what constitutes a tax crime, the government agencies involved, the investigation and charging process, the application of privileges, the government’s use of information obtained through illegal means, and the potential consequences of conviction.
