Every business incurs expenses and being able to deduct such expenses will go a long way towards reducing the tax liability for any businesses. Wrongfully claimed deductions can lead to penalties and criminal charges. Tax authorities can take legal action if discrepancies are found. Additionally, if you intentionally claim deductions that you are not entitled to, it can be considered tax evasion and may result in penalties, fines, and even criminal charges.
