Any type of criminal accusation can have lasting effects on a person's life. If a New York resident is accused of a tax-related crime, the situation can be immensely complicated. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to understand exactly where one went wrong when facing such charges, so understanding tax fraud may be important to someone facing such allegations.
