Across Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Eastern Iowa, Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council reps took to the streets to warn the public about tax fraud.
Tax Fraud Days of Action started on April 12, 2023, and runs through April 18.
“Are my taxes too high?” was the question on the minds of many after seeing the Regional Council’s banners in front of businesses, post offices and on street corners. All told, our communities lose out big time because of cheating contractors – we all know this, but we have to remind the public every year that tax cheats are stealing from the working men in women who pay their fair share.
Contractors who commit tax fraud are abusing workers and skipping out on their tax obligation, passing it off to mom and pop. It kneecaps the ability to fund public safety, education and other vital services that require our taxes. Illinois, Missouri and Kansas all lose hundreds of millions every year and the federal government loses more than $15 billion!
Thank you to all of our Brothers and Sisters that took time out of their schedules to help us get the message out!
