Tax evasion differs from fraud, because it targets taxes specifically, instead of other financial endeavors. Allegations can detail diversions of funds to avoid paying more taxes or particular accounting practices aimed at limiting a company or person’s tax liability.
Businesses, corporations, or individual people can be accused of tax evasion, which costs the United States government billions of dollars every year in revenue. This can cover areas of Value Added or Sales taxes, customs and invoicing, or personal income.
