5 Arrested. Cash, Business Records, Computers, Untaxed Cigarettes and Cigarette-Rolling Machines Seized



The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, along with the County Sheriff and Orange County District Attorney, announced that five individuals were charged with possessing untaxed cigarettes. New York State Tax Department investigators, assisted by the Sheriff’s Office, executed six search warrants at multiple roll-your-own cigarette shops across the county on September 26. “Businesses that evade their tax obligations deprive the communities where they operate of tax revenue for vital services and gain an unfair advantage over honest merchants,” said New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Michael Schmidt. “We thank the Sheriff’s Office and the y District Attorney’s Office for partnering with us on this case, as we continue to work with all levels of law enforcement to root out the sale of untaxed cigarettes.”

Doctor Sentenced to Prison for Tax Evasion (he should have hired Selig & Associates)



He Tried to Thwart IRS Collection Efforts

On October 2nd 2019 another medical doctor was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison for evading the payment of his income taxes, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and United States Attorney R. Andrew Murray. According to documents and information provided to the court, from May 2012 to December 2015, the good doctor took several actions to evade payment of federal income taxes, interest, and penalties he accrued over six previous tax years. The sawbones ignored a duly-issued Internal Revenue Service (IRS) summons to appear before an IRS collections officer with his pertinent financial records.  After the IRS sought and received a court order compelling him to comply with the summons, he provided minimal information and omitted records related to any financial accounts and assets he may have had. The doctor also hid his assets from the IRS by depositing his paychecks on a reloadable debit card and having wages issued in the name of a company he controlled rather than directly to himself.

Workers Comp Misclassification. Defendants Charged with Insurance Fraud, Grand Larceny and Scheme to Defraud.

Manhattan District Attorney and New York City Department of Investigation Commissioner announced the indictment of another construction company and six of its employees for misclassifying workers as lesser-skilled, underpaying them, and falsifying information about payroll and employees. 

We successfully solve IRS and New York State Tax problems, including Workers Compensation Audits, Premium Disputes, suspended Drivers Licenses and Passports. 

The defendants are charged in a New York State Supreme Court indictment with Insurance Fraud in the Second and Third Degrees, Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, and Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree, among other charges.

Misclassifying workers as lesser-skilled is a common way that employers steal from their employees, and I thank our Construction Fraud Task Force partners for their continued commitment to protecting the workers who put their lives on the line every day." The indictment follows a joint investigation led by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s Construction Fraud Task Force and DOI, with additional assistance by NYSIF.  In addition to wage theft, the defendants also filed false payroll information with NYSIF in order to lower their workers' compensation insurance premiums. 

By under-reporting the company's expected aggregate payroll underpaid NYSIF approximately $380,000 for the insurance coverage it received. In addition, by misclassifying ironworkers as concrete laborers—who are insured by NYSIF at a lower risk factor— the construction company fraudulently lowered their premium for the insurance year 2016-17. In total, they underpaid NYSIF by approximately $410,000 by under-reporting payroll and misclassifying workers.

Trucking Company President Charged with Violating Workers Compensation Law (he should have hired SELIG & Associates)


The investigation was a joint effort conducted by NYSIF’s Division of Confidential Investigations, the Department of Financial Services and the Queens County District Attorney’s Office.

Authorities arrested the owner of a Queens trucking company and one of his workers for falsifying documents that led to more than $216,000 in alleged workers’ compensation fraud against the New York State Insurance Fund. The Queens District Attorney’s Office arrested the president of a Trucking Company and charged him with fraudulent practices in violation of the Workers’ Compensation Law and offering a false instrument for filing, both felonies. Investigators said the Queens resident allegedly underreported payroll for his trucking company from July 2012 through July 2015 to avoid paying the correct insurance premium to NYSIF.  The Trucking Company owner allegedly claimed he worked alone in his business and had no employees. The investigation revealed the Trucking Company owner employed several trucks and drivers, whom he paid in cash, expenses allegedly listed in accounting ledgers as fuel costs for his business. As a result, he allegedly underpaid NYSIF by more than $158,000 in insurance premiums.

2 NY Contractors Arrested 4 Workers Compensation Crime! Selig & Associates. Workers Comp Audits, Criminal & Audit Dispute Representation

212.974.3435
Truetaxhelp.com


In December a contractor applied for a building permit from the city and submitted a document indicating he had no employees and was not required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance.

The investigation determined the contractor actually had several employees working on the roofing project and New York state law requires employers to provide workers’ compensation insurance for any employees they hire.

Two New York state contractors were arrested on charges they filed fraudulent applications for a roofing project as part of a workers’ compensation fraud scheme.
One contractor was charged with offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree, a felony, and the workers’ compensation crime of failure to secure compensation, a misdemeanor.
The other contractor was charged with offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree, a felony.

An investigation by Catherine Leahy Scott, New York state workers’ compensation fraud inspector general, found that in late October and November 2018, the City Engineering Department Division of Building and Zoning Enforcement issued stop work orders for a residential roofing project for lack of a building permit.

In December a contractor applied for a building permit from the city and submitted a document indicating he had no employees and was not required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. The investigation determined the contractor actually had several employees working on the roofing project and New York state law requires employers to provide workers’ compensation insurance for any employees they hire.

Subsequent to  being denied a permit by the city, one of the contractors applied for a permit for the same project, indicating his company, which has workers’ compensation insurance, would perform the work. 

The investigation determined the contractor’s company continued to perform the work on the roof, when in reality, the insured contractor's company was not involved with the project.

Accordingly, one contractor [who failed to hire Selig & Associates] plead guilty to criminal possession of a forged instrument, id est. a falsified workers’ compensation certificate of insurance.

“These two contractors, one of whom with a recent history of fraud, chose a course of deception over honest business practices,” said Leahy Scott in a press release issued by her office. “My office and our local and state enforcement partners will not tolerate any corruption of a critical benefits program meant to protect honest hard-working employees.”

Defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
