Tax compliance issues are enjoying an unprecedented degree of public attention these days, and tax fraud often captures the attention of the public as well as the concern of financial executives. According to Megan Brackney, a partner of Kostelanetz & Fink, LLP, the illegal nonpayment or underpayment of taxes could result in corporate criminal liability, unless the enterprise can show that it has taken action to prevent the bad conduct.
