WASHINGTON, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "New York is the only state in the nation with an aggressive initiative to reward whistleblowers who have proof of state sales tax or income tax fraud. New York's tax fraud laws cover violations of the tax law, including submission of a fraudulent return - provided the violator has an income over $1 million and the harm to the state exceeds $350,000. The state can go back ten years and potential whistleblower rewards can range between 15% to 25% of what the state recovers.
"New York's tax fraud whistleblower laws create an enormous opportunity for honest employees to step forward, if they know their employer is running two sets of books, taking cash payments from customers and not paying any kind of tax on the transaction, or if the company is paying illegal aliens cash instead of showing them as actual employees." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging employees of companies in New York to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have proof their employer is running two sets of books - one set of books that does not include cash transactions - and a second set of accounting records/books that show all transactions - including all employees - illegal and legal.
The Center is especially interested in hearing from bookkeepers or employees of the following types of companies in New York if they can prove the company is involved in significant state income tax fraud:
- Car/Truck dealerships
- Appliance/Flat Screen TV retailers
- Home Remodeling Companies
- Roofing/Plumbing Contractors
- Adult entertainment clubs
- Any type of business in New York State paying their employees cash because they are illegal aliens.
"If you are an employee of any kind of business in New York state, and you can prove your employer is keeping separate records for cash and non-cash transactions that exceed $1 million, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. You can also contact us via our web site." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It's a huge mistake." Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower's information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company or individual to come clean on big time state or federal tax fraud. "Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it's sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information."
