How Employees Commit Employee Tax Fraud and Embezzlement

Employee tax fraud is more common than many people think it is. It is harder to detect as the amounts that are stolen are often not large sums. It can therefore go unnoticed for years. Some of the most common ways employees commit tax fraud and embezzle company funds include: 

  • Creating fake employees on payroll 
  • Prolonging pay to employees that have already left the company 
  • Falsifying time sheets 
  • Falsifying the number of units produced by the company 
  • Inflating expenses 
  • Making false claims to evade tax 
  • Making false statements about the company’s income 
  • Filing inaccurate income tax 
  • Faking illness to claim sick leave 

These are just a few examples of home employees can defraud their employers as well as the government of money. However, when their crimes are discovered, fraudulent employees face imprisonment as well as hefty fines and penalties.
