What to learn from Bernie Madoff

New York residents and others may remember that Bernie Madoff was taken into custody in December 2008. He was sentenced to 150 years in prison after being convicted of perjury and other felony charges. Madoff ran a Ponzi Scheme, in which investors put money into a project or some other entity that doesn't exist. The original investors are paid with cash that is collected from those who enter into the deal later on.

The difference between tax fraud and negligence

According to the IRS, about 17 percent of taxpayers don't follow the tax code in a given year. However, less than 1 percent of taxpayers are convicted of tax fraud or other tax code violations annually. This is because not all violations of the tax code are the same. To rise to the level of fraud, a taxpayer in New York or elsewhere must willfully ignore or violate some portion of the tax code.

How does a drug conviction affect NY voting rights?

If you face felony drug charges in New York, you likely have a variety of concerns. While mounting a good defense and limiting prison time are probably at the front of your mind, you cannot forget about your post-conviction civic life. You may wonder how a drug conviction in the Empire State could affect your legal right to vote.
