We Could Soon Know the Results (If Any) of the Feds’ Raid of Alliantgroup

It has been more than three weeks since IRS Criminal Investigation conducted a court-ordered raid of Alliantgroup’s offices in Houston. Since then we still haven’t learned exactly why the IRS paid a visit to the tax consulting firm’s Houston headquarters. No arrests were made that day. But we might know by the end of the month if investigators dug up some interesting dirt on Alliantgroup.

We have been unable to confirm this so far, but rumor has it a grand jury hearing will be held at the federal courthouse in downtown Houston on June 23 related to the raid. A source who works at Alliantgroup and wished to remain anonymous told us that multiple Alliantgroup clients received subpoenas asking for their testimony.

We were told that the grand jury hearing will determine whether the evidence the IRS has on any possible wrongdoing by Alliantgroup merits criminal charges being filed. The source said what those charges could be is anyone’s guess at this point. And if the hearing doesn’t go as planned for the government, we may never find out why the raid was conducted. But it the hearing does go well for the government, our source said, “We’ll all find out if charges will be filed that day or very soon after.”

There has been speculation that the raid was connected to a lawsuit filed against Alliantgroup in 2019 regarding 179D tax deductions. But our source shot that down, saying that particular lawsuit was resolved.

That’s all we know at this point. If anyone can shed any more light on this possible grand jury hearing next week, get in touch with us using the contact info below. All tipsters will be kept anonymous.

  1. If you go to LinkedIn, you’ll notice an incredible influx of international student new hires. AG often uses visa sponsorship to recruit fresh grads, but their recruiting practices have never caused a more obvious influx than after their IRS raid.

    Exploitive much?

  2. Where there is smoke there is fire. I used to work there and AG is so shady, smoke and mirrors. Tried to silence me with a meager severance and I said Hell No.

  3. I used to work for AG and they are SO shady! So much illegal activity… I’m sure a government lawyer would love to speak with me. I was very close to management in the Irvine, CA office and have lots of dirt!!!
