Under IRS Investigation for an Estate Planning Matter?

attorney needs to have a thorough understanding of tax law and at the
same time be an effective advocate. At P. Arnsen Blakely we have been

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) investigates matters which they suspect
may be ploys to evade taxes. They are particularly apt to investigate
the creation of
trusts. They are suspicious when they observe:
- A trust which totally eliminates a party's taxable income.
- A trust which deducts personal expenses as a business expense of the trust.
- Taxes which eliminate self-employment taxes.
- A trust which eliminates all estate and gift taxes
- A "business trust" which appears to give control of a business
to a trust but where the creator is still making the affairs.
- A "family trust" in which the creator puts the family home in
a trust and deducts the costs of maintenance and operation of the home
as a trust expense.
- A "charitable trust" in which the creator puts considerable funds
and then uses the trust to provide for family expenses.
- Foreign trusts in to which the creator directs untaxed funds. The creator
attempts to "wash" the money through several moves and finally
bring it back into the United States disguised as non-income to dodge tax.
Any evidence of fraudulent activity can subject you to invasive IRS investigations
and potential criminal penalties. Capable of deftly addressing these matters
to ensure that you are protected and that the estate in question can be
properly handled, our Orange County estate planning attorney is here to
provide you with the legal assistance and representation you require.
