Convinced IRS to Drop Criminal Tax Investigation of Non-Profit Organization

A non-profit advocacy organization active in a contentious area of public policy faced a criminal tax investigation into its alleged underpayment of taxes over multiple years. The AmLaw 100 firm representing the founder of the organization reached out to SouthBank Legal for assistance in the defense. SouthBank Legal partnered with the AmLaw 100 firm and gathered evidence demonstrating that the IRS’s allegations were factually suspect and that no crime had occurred. Following negotiations with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and IRS agents, the IRS dropped the case completely and the non-profit organization faced no adverse consequences or publicity.
