Criminal Tax Investigations

The law recognises criminal offences with a tax component. These cases are not dealt with by the tax authority itself but by the FIOD. Examples are falling foul of obligations to provide tax information, incorrect filing out of a tax return, and intentionally not (timely) paying taxes.

Turning a tax case into a criminal one is more exception more than the rule. Not every situation where tax is underreported becomes a criminal matter. Rightfully so, as criminal powers have a significant impact and seriously intrude on your privacy – consider searches, interrogations, and requests for information from third parties.
