Please take note of the following...

Crime-Fraud Exception to Attorney-Client Privilege
"Something you should know..."

  • To successfully defend a petitioner-taxpayer against IRS allegations of fraud, please know that the Crime-Fraud Exception to the Attorney-Client Privilege applies if:
    • the client was in the process of committing or intended to commit a crime or fraudulent act, and
    • the client communicated with the lawyer with intent to further the crime or fraud, or to cover it up.
  • Counsel must report violations to the presiding U.S. Tax Court judge in the case.
  • The crime-fraud exception can render the privilege moot when communications between an attorney and client are themselves used to further a crime, tort, or fraud. ... The crime-fraud exception also does require that the crime or fraud discussed between client and attorney be carried out to be triggered.
  • The crime-fraud exception cannot be used to pierce the attorney work-product privilege without the required showing that the work product was actually used in furtherance of the purported crime or fraud. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit clarified that, without more, even compelling evidence of a crime or fraud is insufficient to invoke the exception. The ruling has important ramifications for practitioners advising clients on the contours of lawful conduct.
