Focus Areas

Tharrington Smith can provide the legal guidance that you need. If you have been served with a Federal Grand Jury Subpoena, an IRS administrative summons for documents, or if you have been visited by the Special Agents of the IRS-CI or NCDOR-CI, we can provide the legal guidance that you need. The IRS may encourage you to make a voluntary disclosure. However, we encourage you to seek the advice of a North Carolina criminal tax lawyer before making any statements to the IRS.

We are experienced federal and state criminal tax fraud defense attorneys and have defended countless criminal tax evasion cases. Criminal tax defense has been a unique focus of the firm’s criminal defense practice for more than twenty years.

We work with forensic accountants, former IRS and Department of Revenue agents, and other professionals to develop your best defense to a criminal tax charge. Whether you are the subject of a criminal tax investigation or are concerned that you might be in the future, you should consult with an experienced North Carolina criminal attorney immediately.
