    NY: Construction brothers guilty of tax evasion

    Construction brothers guilty of tax evasion

    Two brothers who operate a Patchogue construction company pleaded guilty Friday to evading federal income taxes, the latest in a series of cases on Long Island involving employment of undocumented immigrants working in home construction, according to officials.

    The brothers, Timothy Kaywood, 44, and Peter Kaywood, 41, who own New Vision Construction Corp., were charged with evading $124,000 in taxes on payments they made off the books to workers in 2006, according to court documents. As part of a plea bargain, they admitted to failing to pay $61,000 in taxes.

    The brothers, who provide carpenters who do framing work on new houses around Long Island, said little except to admit their guilt to U.S. District Judge Thomas Platt at the federal court in Central Islip.

    Martin Conroy, director of organizing for the Empire State Regional Council of Carpenters, said afterward the case showed that in addition to depriving carpenters who are citizens of work, the practice was extensive and depriving the government of needed tax revenue.

    The Kaywoods' prosecution was the third time since June a Long Island construction firm has pleaded guilty to evading taxes, under a crackdown by the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service.

    The brothers face a prison term of between zero to 5 years.

    The difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien is the equivalent of the difference between a burglar and a houseguest. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    Zero to fives years?

    I hope its five. Let their families feel what other carpenters are feeling in this country who've been replaced by illegals. My friend just shut down his construction business after years of work due to unfair competition. I talked to a man when I was working the primaries and he had worked for years for a company and was laid off and the construction company hired an illegal, paid him 1/4 the pay and had to train him. I say give them five years, confiscate their equipment, take away their business licenses.
