During an investigation, what are the ramifications of filing an unfiled return, amending an 'incorrect' return, paying outstanding taxes, or admitting wrongdoing? Can lawyers make a difference? What are some of the ramifications of destroying records? Mr. Hironaka offers his perspective on these actions and more.
Mr. Hironaka is available to assist legal counsel in criminal and civil legal proceedings to include facilitating counsel’s understanding of financial activities and transactions, testifying in court as an expert witness, and preparing visual aids to support trial evidence.
