What is tax evasion? How is it punished in Florida?
Answer: Tax evasion is when you fraudulently evade the paying of taxes. So you don’t pay your taxes by misrepresenting what you actually make in an effort to try to evade the payment of taxes. And in Florida, there’s not a specific way it’s punished in Florida, but it would be punished consistently through the federal court systems the same, whether or not you’re in Florida or in any other state. And it’s punished based on a tax table, which means that the amount of taxes that you’ve evaded, as the amount increases the punishment and the crime increases. So, the length of time that you would spend in prison would relate to the amount of taxes that you actually evaded.
