A young mother of 3 was horrified when she realized her husband had deceived her and the IRS about the rental income and expenses he was and wasn't reporting. To further complicate matters, he then claimed that all the rental properties he had managed, valued in the $ millions, and the income from which they had lived on and reported on their tax returns, were actually not his property but his father's. With the help of a forensic accountant, Attorney Haakonsen was able to cast enough doubt on the husband's story that a reasonable settlement was achieved for our client without exposing anyone to dangerous tax implications.
