Fighting Tax Fraud

You work hard and pay your taxes… so why don’t they?

Every year tax fraud within the construction industry costs hard-working Americans over $2.6 billion. That’s $80 a second bled out of communities still recovering from the 2008 Recession, the worst financial blow Americans have faced since the Great Depression.

Corrupt contractors are the biggest perpetrator of tax fraud––mis-classifying workers or paying them entirely off the books so they can dodge paying federal and state taxes. All the while, they’re pocketing this extra money while you’re left holding the bill every tax season.

Remember, that is $80 a second taken away from:

  • Building new schools to reduce class sizes
  • Improving our infrastructure–bridges, roads, fire, police stations, libraries, etc
  • Increasing funding for our first responders
  • Programs to help veterans
  • And more…

All of this could go toward these programs–all without adding to our deficit.

Nationwide, we are standing up and fighting against tax fraud. We want to make sure those who dodge the law and endanger their workers are held accountable.
