Description: San Francisco, California criminal law lawyer represented defendant charged with willfully failing to account for and pay over employment taxes to the IRS.

Larry Kudsk, of Berkeley, operated two construction businesses, Kudsk Construction Inc. and M. Gutierrez Inc. The companies served as a general contractor or subcontractor on various construction projects, including some government projects. For both companies, Kudsk was responsible for filing quarterly employment tax returns and collecting and paying to the IRS payroll taxes withheld from employees’ wages. Kudsk, however, did not timely file employment tax returns or pay over withholdings to the IRS, for 2014 and the last three quarters of 2015 for M.
