Accountants, CPAs, tax attorneys, and other tax professionals may find themselves under investigation by the IRS and the Department of Justice for their preparation of tax returns for clients or their promotion of tax avoidance strategies. This unwanted scrutiny includes the potential for civil, administrative, and even criminal penalties.
Matt Mueller, a former federal prosecutor and now Of Counsel with Guerra King, will be speaking on a panel at the ABA Section of Taxation’s upcoming fall CLE meeting in Chicago on September 19th. The title of the panel is “Tax Preparer Fraud: Strategies for Defending the Tax Preparer or Promoter in Criminal and Civil Injunction Litigation.” Among other topics, the panel will discuss practical tips and strategies for defending clients under IRS and DOJ investigation or charged with tax and related crimes, as well as those who the government seeks to enjoin from preparing returns or promoting certain tax positions.
