Client Tax Fraud – A Practical Guide for Protecting Your Rights

Speaker: Howard L. Stone, Stone, McGuire & Siegel, P.C.
This session will familiarize attendees with the area of criminal tax fraud and related criminal offenses. Understanding criminal tax fraud can prevent the loss of a CPA’s license, professional reputation, and the expenditure of legal fees. With knowledge of this material, attendees will reap the rewards of positive reputations, as well as the security of freedom from fear of being prosecuted because of the acts of a client. 
In this session, attendees will also learn about recent tax fraud prosecutions and how to protect themselves and their firm from criminal prosecution. We will discuss federal law enforcement techniques used to enforce federal criminal law, with a focus on tax fraud. 

Howard Stone is an accomplished litigator and investigative lawyer with extensive experience in white-collar criminal defense and health care and health care administrative law. A former IRS agent and former Assistant United States Attorney in the Northern District of Illinois, he is experienced in both civil and white collar criminal defense. He started and caused the indictment and conviction of eleven Illinois State Legislators for bribery in a case involving concrete ready-mix truck weight legislation.
In private practice for over 40 years, Howard has focused on defending health care providers in investigations by United States Department of Justice and the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General (OIG). He has protected owners and corporate officers from civil and criminal actions by implementing Owner/Officer Protection Programs and Compliance Programs.
Howard has also worked tirelessly on behalf of older Americans, joining with Dr. Morton Creditor to establish a geriatric research program at the University of Illinois and served as President of the Fund for Gerontology Research at the University. He also is an adjunct lecturer at the University of Illinois.
