yep and I wonder what the odds are of the the leader of that organization ever doing 'jail time' ??
That remains to be seen. Trump was not personally
indicted for anything in the tax fraud trial of the Trump Organization
, but the CFO of the organization will spend 5 months in jail for violations in his personal
tax returns (assuming the judge decides he complied with his plea deal).
>>>Weisselberg, who is on paid leave from the company, spent three days on the witness stand. He pleaded guilty to 15 felonies for failing to pay taxes on $1.76 million in income. As part of his plea deal, he will be sentenced to five months in jail if the judge finds that he testified truthfully.
Now that Trump's personal
tax returns are public, prosecutors can review them for potential criminal violations.
Having said that, very few people ever do jail time for tax fraud (by itself).
>>>It is a crime to cheat on your taxes. In a recent year, however, fewer than 2,000 people were convicted of tax crimes —0.0022% of all taxpayers. . . . You will probably never face criminal fraud penalties. At least 98% of the time, the IRS punishes fraud with civil penalties—fines of 75% added to the tax due.<<<
If you are being investigated by the IRS for fraud and tax crimes, consider hiring the best tax lawyer you can find.
I have yet to see a comprehensive review of Trump's personal
tax returns suggesting that he either did or did not commit crimes in connection with his personal
