Used Car Salesman Used Friends to Cheat IRS

It’s nice to have friends! Especially when they agree to commit tax fraud with you.

Donald Benck of St. Louis pleaded guilty to hiding upwards of $300,000 in income from the IRS. The used car salesman arranged for his employer to pay his commission with checks made out to several acquaintances. In exchange for a small fee, the acquaintances deposited the checks into their personal bank accounts and gave Benck the cash.

In 2014 Benck underreported his income by $31,300, in 2015 by $131,400, and in 2016 by $93,035, causing the IRS a loss of $84,092.

Benck faces restitution and up to 15 years in prison.
