Feds had tax beef with owner of chicken chain; now his goose is cooked

Hazrat Khalid Khan, 56, who lives in Middletown, NY, but who co-owns 11 fried-chicken take-out places in Mattapan, Hyde Park, Dorchester, Roxbury, Brighton and Chelsea, today pleaded guilty to conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service, failing to collect and pay over taxes, committing mail fraud, making false statements on a naturalization application, and committing visa fraud, the US Attorney's office reports.

Khan will be sentenced on Aug. 16.

Khan and his two co-owners - missing and believed to have fled to Pakistan - ran a tax-evasion scheme for years at their New York, Kennedy and Crown Fried Chicken places:

Khan and his co-conspirators - generally the managers of these restaurants - defrauded the government and avoided paying payroll and income taxes owed by the stores. They paid their employees in cash and provided tax preparers with false information about the restaurants’ payroll and income, thereby causing the tax preparers to file false tax returns. ...

To avoid paying taxes, Khan and several co-conspirators falsely reported to the IRS the number of employees at their stores - some of whom were undocumented workers - and the wages they paid them. They also failed to file W-2s showing wages paid to employees and falsely described on tax returns their sales, total income, compensation of officers, salaries and wages, and taxable income. Khan and his co-conspirators also failed to withhold payroll taxes and pay them over to the IRS.

I wonder if it's any relation to the Crown Fried Chicken and Pizza that used in be in Maverick Square.

The fried chicken was the equivalent of pizza made with Wonder bread, ketchup, and off-brand Kraft singles.

I'd venture to say that this guy was caught only because he was a larger operation and was too blatant in ripping off the government. Some large percent of one-off small cash-based businesses like this, scam the government out of paying all the taxes they owe. If every business paid 100% of the taxes they should pay, we could all have a nice tax cut and Trump could build his wall.
