A business owner in Newberry, Florida has been sentenced to one year and one day in prison for his part in a tax fraud scheme. The scheme also involved avoiding paying workers’ compensation insurance, as well as harboring immigrants who were in the country without permission.
Mac Johnson, age 51, is owner of three companies—Mac Johnson Roofing Inc., Mac Johnson and Sons Dumpster and Crane, and Johnson and Sons Tree Service. The Florida Department of Financial Services—Workers’ Compensation Compliance Division made several visits to the work sites of Johnson’s companies. Investigators learned that, apart from the foreman, Johnson’s employees neither spoke English nor possessed any personal identification.
