Special emphasis, however, is placed on investigations in- volving income, employment and excise taxes. While the usual criminal of- fense involves a single oc- currence and a single in- strument of crime, such as a rifled safe or a murder weapon, violations investigated by special agents are often com- mitted over a number of years, and are complicated by the vast number and variety of business and financial transactions.
