Sales Tax Fraud
Helping Employees Expose Sales Tax Fraud
Typically, when you or I purchase a product, we owe sales taxes to a state or city; the seller collects the taxes and holds the money in trust. The seller is expected to pay all of the money over to the State, usually on a monthly basis. But, in a disturbing number of cases, the seller will cheat by skimming all or a portion of the money. The money should go to provide important services for local citizens – think funding schools and fixing potholes, but instead it is being pocketed by unscrupulous businesses.
If you have knowledge of sales tax fraud at a company you work for, you may be able to help states and cities recover money paid by consumers, and earn a whistleblower award for helping to bring the fraud to an end. Indeed, as many states and cities struggle to pay the bills to provide essential services, more and more of them are looking to crackdown on sales tax cheats to recoup lost taxes.
