White collar crime may seem like a crime that is far removed from our everyday lives but is an offense that is more widespread than many think. White collar crime encompasses corporate tax fraud, tax evasion, electronic crime, expense-account fraud and money laundering.
What are everyday examples of white collar crime?
White collar crime can be as simple as failing to remit taxes owed on cash transactions to the IRS or failing to record cash payments made to your company. However, most white collar crime typically falls under the umbrella of crime that has affected dozens of individuals, with tens of thousands of dollars or more, at stake.
White collar crimes can also include environmental crimes in some cases. Examples include mining without necessary permits or knowingly polluting a body of water with commercial waste, while failing to notify investors and shareholders of these illegal practices. Similar to environmental crimes where special prosecutors are hired to sift through large volumes of business documents to determine a company’s culpability in the environmental matter, special prosecutors are hired in white collar crime cases in order to determine the extent of the crime.
