Don Fort Presents A CPE Webinar Entitled “Criminal Tax Fraud Overview: Crossing the line from Civil to Criminal” For MyCPE

April 26 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

On April 26, 2022, Don Fort presents a CPE webinar entitled “Criminal Tax Fraud Overview: Crossing the line from Civil to Criminal” for MyCPE.

Description: Where is the line between legitimate tax planning and criminal tax fraud? There are two types of federal income tax fraud:  civil and criminal. Although these two concepts are related and even intertwined to some extent, they do have significant differences. For starters, civil tax fraud generally results in penalties asserted against a taxpayer whereas criminal tax fraud generally results in jail time or probation. Significantly, however, a taxpayer can be liable for both civil tax fraud and criminal tax fraud with respect to the same activity or activities, i.e., the Government can assert both sanctions against a wrongful taxpayer. In this course, Don Fort shares his expertise in understanding the difference between civil and criminal tax matters. CPE credit is offered for this event.

Identify what conduct is criminal;
