The Canadian government takes tax evasion and tax fraud seriously. If you are being investigated for tax fraud or evasion in Saskatchewan, it's important to contact a criminal defence lawyer immediately. We know that dealing with tax evasion or fraud charges is stressful and confusing. We will work hard to ensure that you understand the charges against you, what your options are and that your rights are protected.
You can be charged with tax fraud or tax evasion if you do not report all of your worldwide income or if you claim tax credits or expenses that you are not entitled to deduct. The Income Tax Act and the Excise Tax Act cover tax evasion and tax fraud in Canada. If convicted, you could face penalties that include jail sentences and/or fines of up to 200% of taxes evaded or misreported. You may also face other criminal charges, such as embezzlement or money laundering.
