Tax Fraud Client Found Not Guilty

In United States v. Josephine Thayer, in a federal tax fraud jury trial, Ms. Lefeber represented a wife who became involved in her husband's business and was charged with tax evasion. The government proved that the defendants failed to pay payroll taxes and used the monies collected to pay business expenses. Nonetheless, Ms. Lefeber researched and found loopholes in the criminal tax law which resulted in a finding of NOT GUILTY.
