Sales Tax Attorney Des Plaines

Sales Tax Attorney Des Plaines

The state of Illinois is broke and is looking for revenues, penalties, and interest. Unfortunately, many business owners have been underreporting their sales tax and in essence embezzling the government’s money. It’s a catch 22 when your business is failing because your property taxes keep going up, but you have to pay that same state their fair share of sales tax.

 

Nine Chicago liquor store operators were charged with sales tax evasion.

From July 2010 to December 2013, the nine defendants collectively defrauded the state out of more than $3.5 million in sales taxes, according to a statement from the Attorney General’s office.

Seven operators were charged with sales tax evasion of more than $100,000, a Class 1 felony punishable by up to four to 15 years in prison. Yasir Kanan and Dipakkumar Patel were charged with sales tax evasion of more than $10,000, a Class 2 felony punishable by up to three to seven years in prison, according to the statement.

 

The charges are the result of a two-year criminal tax investigation into untaxed liquor brought in from out of state by the Illinois Department of Revenue’s Criminal Investigation Division.
