It's Tax Season! The IRS, for years, has been the tip of the spear for financial fraud investigations. But in 2020, the IRS doubled down creating the Fraud Enforcement Office (OFE) focused on rooting out tax evasion, abusive tax avoidance scams and other malicious activity including the use of cryptocurrency to facilitate fraudulent activity. The OFE, part of IRS's Small Business/Self Employed Division, is leading the charge in holding fraudsters, tax cheats, scammers, and money launderers accountable. TRM Talks to Eric Hylton, IRS Commissioner of the Small Business/Self Employed Division and Carolyn Schenck, IRS Fraud Counsel, on how they are leveraging financial expertise across the IRS and around the world to combat cryptocurrency related fraud.
