Being paid as an independent contractor or off-the-books when you’re an employee is tax fraud. Construction Industry Tax Fraud cheats everyone: workers, law-abiding contractors, insurance companies and you. Tax fraud steals jobs and drives down wages and benefits for construction workers and their families and denies workers legally mandated benefits and protections, like workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance and overtime pay. The UBC is doing its part by providing contractors, developers, legislators and agency leaders with research and resources to learn about and crack down on Tax Fraud.
