ILLINOIS CRIMINAL AND CIVIL TAX LAW FIRM, METRO EAST, BELLEVILLE, ST. CLAIR COUNTY, ILLINOIS INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE AND ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE REPRESENTATION. WE WERE HIRED BY AN INSURANCE AGENT IN REGARD TO A CRIMINAL TAX CASE IN THE SOUTHERN ILLINOIS REGION. THE INSURANCE AGENT WAS A PILLAR OF THE COMMUNITY. HIS NAME WAS WELL-ESTABLISHED AND HE WAS HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM BY EVERYONE, INCLUDING HIS CO-WORKERS, NEIGHBORS, FAMILY AND OTHERS. FOR SOME REASON, HE STOPPED FILING INCOME TAX RETURNS, PERSONAL AND BUSINESS. APPARENTLY, AFTER HE DID NOT FILE FOR A GIVEN YEAR, HE WAS THEN CONCERNED THAT IF HE STARTED FILING AGAIN, HIS ACTIONS MAY BE DISCOVERED. AS A RESULT, HE CONTINUED NOT FILING PERSONAL AND BUSINESS TAX RETURNS, FEDERAL AND STATE, FOR MANY YEARS. EVENTUALLY, HE WAS VISITED BY CRIMINAL TAX AGENTS FROM THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE. AFTER THAT, HE WAS CHARGED WITH CRIMINAL TAX EVASION IN CIRCUIT COURT. THERE WAS NO PUBLICITY OR NEWS RELEASES AT THAT TIME. WE BECAME INVOLVED IN PROVIDING REPRESENTATION AND WE WENT BACK TEN (10) YEARS AND THERE WERE MORE THAT THIRTY INCOME TAX RETURNS, FEDERAL AND STATE, INDIVIDUAL AND BUSINESS, FILED. ONCE THOSE TAX LIABILITIES HAD BEEN ASSESSED, WE WORKED OUT A RESOLUTION TO PAY THE TAXES. WE COULD HAVE GONE BACK FURTHER. HOWEVER, PURSUANT TO RESEARCH OF AUTHORITIES AND FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES, WE STOPPED AT THE TEN (10) YEAR MARK. IF WE WOULD HAVE GONE BACK FURTHER, HE WOULD HAVE OWED MORE. HERE IS THE BOTTOM LINE. FIRST, HE DID NOT HAVE TO PAY ALL OF THE TAX LIABILITIES AND ACCRUALS THAT HE OTHERWISE MIGHT HAVE HAD TO PAY. SECOND, WE WERE ABLE TO BRING CURRENT TAX SITUATION AND HE CONTINUED FOR MANY YEARS AS A SUCCESSFUL INSURANCE AGENT IN HIS COMMUNITY. THIRD, THE CRIMINAL CHARGE FROM THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE WAS DISPOSED OF IN A MANNER THAT MET WITH THE SATISFACTION OF THE CLIENT. THERE WAS NO INCARCERATION. FOURTH, THERE WAS NEVER ANY PUBLICITY. IN OTHER WORDS, THERE WAS NEVER A NEWS RELEASE GENERATED BY THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE OR INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE WHERE ANYTHING EVER APPEARED IN NEWSPRINT. NO ONE, OTHER THAN HIS IMMEDIATE FAMILY, EVER KNEW ABOUT IT. IT WAS A FANTASTIC RESULT AND IT COULD NOT HAVE TURNED OUT BETTER FOR THE CLIENT, AVAILABLE TO REPRESENT CLIENTS FROM CLINTON COUNTY, CARLYLE, BREESE AND TRENTON, ST. CLAIR COUNTY, BELLEVILLE, O’FALLON AND FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, WABASH COUNTY, MOUNT CARMEL, ALLENDALE AND BELLMONT, AREAS IN ILLINOIS.
