Most thinking taxpayers understand the role their tax contributions have in creating the structured society that we enjoy. We are able to collectively address inequities, guarantee the safety and security of our citizens and create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to tread their own path to prosperity. If we could have these things without paying tax, no doubt we would welcome that, but realistically we know that is not possible.
Unfortunately, there are some people in our society who believe that they have the right to these gifts without making any contribution at all. In fact, they will go to extraordinary lengths to avoid it, and engage in criminal activity amounting to taxation fraud. Sometimes, people who are not criminals can make ill-informed decisions for a range of reasons that also take them into this space, and they find themselves accused of taxation fraud. The law applies equally to everyone and makes no distinction between someone with poor judgement and a career criminal.
Our legal system is founded on the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and everyone is entitled to a professional and knowledgeable defence. Hamid Mirza of ABC Legal is a barrister experienced at defending clients charged with taxation fraud. Hamid and his support team of Taxation Lawyers Sydney are ready to provide expert legal advice and representation in any taxation matter, including fraud.
What is Taxation Fraud?
The most common methods used to attack the tax system are identity theft, secret offshore dealings, high-volume, low-value suspect transactions, credit and refund fraud and illicit tobacco growing and trading. The Tax Office pursues the people who commit taxation fraud vigorously. They seek to preserve the integrity of the whole taxation system, to keep faith with the majority of taxpayers who do the right thing, and to ensure that those who try to dodge their obligations face serious consequences.
Serious tax evasion and fraud is tackled using a range of investigation methods and tools, often in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies. The ATO also uses civil audits and the application of tax penalties where they are applicable. They share information across government agencies to tackle tax crime in a holistic manner.
