Real Housewife Tax Cheats in my Backyard

I’m a resident of Orange County (well, if you read the next post I write…), and I missed the Real Housewife Tax Cheats in Orange County. Luckily, Joe Kristan caught it.

The Orange County Premium Fraud Task Force, a collaboration of investigators from OCDA, DOI, EDD, FTB and the Contractors State License Board investigated the couple for two years and discovered that between 2000 and 2008, they fraudulently submitted 42 claims for uninsured injured workers and underreported $29 million in payroll to SCIF in order to avoid paying Workers’ Compensation Insurance premiums.

Yes, proceeds from illegal income are taxable.
