  • Tax fraud
  • Employment tax underpayment
  • Not responding to a Notice of Deficiency
  • Corporate tax underpayment/underreporting
  • Income tax under withholding and reporting
  • Sales and use tax understatements
  • Unpaid interest and penalties from prior periods
  • Failure to meet the terms of agreements with taxing authorities
