Francisco Mendez, The owner of a construction company in Oregon, pleaded guilty for his role in a scheme to evade 100 million dollars in payroll and income taxes.
From 2014-2018 Mendez conspired with others to make under the table cash payments to construction crews, effectively evading payroll and income taxes due on the wages.
As part of the scheme, legitimate construction companies bid on projects knowing they did not have enough employees to do the job. The companies then supplemented their crews with unlicensed workers, whose leaders would pay Mendez a fee to use his license.
Mendez also collected payroll from the legitimate companies, cashed the checks at check cashing facilities, and paid the unlicensed workers directly.
