Searching Google for Sales Tax Bad Guys
As I've mentioned in my seminars, it's fun to occasionally to a Google search on "sales tax" felony to see who's getting in serious trouble for sales tax violations.
Here's a video store owner who allegedly "misapplied" his sales tax collections.
Here's one about a guy who allegedly reported a boat purchase (and paid taxes when he registered it) with a value of $4000 vs. the real price of $40,000. And there is other stuff going on here that makes this a real soap opera. The taxes are just the beginning.
A restaurant in Michigan REALLY got in trouble for allegedly hiring illegal workers, and not remitting sales tax and employment taxes.
I'll be reporting on some of the more interesting cases every week or so from now on.
