Unscrupulous tax preparers may tempt taxpayers into fraud
Unscrupulous tax preparers and tax fraud promoters make big promises – and charge high fees – but taxpayers are legally responsible for what’s on their return. Taxpayers should use only reputable tax professionals and know what is on their tax return. Although scammers are most active during filing season, they operate year-round, and taxpayers should always be on the lookout for these abusive schemes.
The IRS will challenge the purported tax benefits from these types of transactions and impose penalties. The IRS Criminal Investigation Division is always on the lookout for promoters and participants of these types of schemes. Taxpayers should think twice before including questionable arrangements on their tax returns.
