Money Structuring Defense


Were you arrested for money structuring or have reason to believe that you might be under investigation? The IRS and other government agencies refer to financial and banking reports in order to identify large sums of money being deposited for the purpose of tax collections. Money structuring is a crime that gets in the way of their reports by breaking large deposits into smaller sums with the intent of concealing the size of a transaction and preventing it from being flagged. If you were accused of this crime, Dhar Law, LLP can help protect your rights.

Money structuring specifically refers to individuals who are actively trying to avoid paying the IRS in some way. This may be tied to money laundering or tax evasion in some way or be related to money obtained illegally. In some cases, money structuring can involve a plan to have many different people handle financial transactions at separate banks to avoid reporting. Whatever the case may be or what you have been accused of, we can help. Our firm is extremely familiar with white collar crime laws, the way the federal prosecutors think, and how to create strategic defense tactics for clients accused of money structuring to help avoid a conviction and severe penalties.
