same old story…..cheat the government…..go to prison

State Investigators Arrest Two Riverside Men In Tax Fraud Probe

November 01, 2013

Posh home and Auto Sales Businesses Raided

State investigators with the Franchise Tax Board and Board of Equalization raided a million dollar-plus residence in Riverside and two automobile sales businesses Tuesday, October 29.   After serving the search warrants, investigators arrested Ahmad Mohamod Sami, 38 and Nader M. Sami, 45, both of Riverside.   According to the Riverside County Jail’s website, the two men were each booked on three felony charges including white collar crime, failure to turn over government money and filing false tax returns.

Investigators searched the homes on Wyndham Hill Drive and could be seen loading potential evidence into rented moving vans.  Parked on the two acre parcel were two Bentleys and a Jaguar, all with paper auto dealer plates on them.

Investigators also searched and removed items from A-one Auto Centers located in Riverside and San Bernardino.

“While this investigation has stirred up questions and intrigue among the public in Riverside, the investigators must go about their duties to determine what laws have been violated and see this case through the prosecution process,” said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents nearly 7,000 law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the State of California including investigators with the Franchise Tax Board.

car dealers…..salesperson as employee or independent contractor ???

 

Larry Miles, senior attorney with The Miles Law Firm, recently won an important decision for the California auction industry involving the question of whether auto auctioneers are employees or independent contractors.  Arguing that auto auctioneers are sufficiently unique in their skills and independent in their work to justify being deemed independent contractors,  Miles persuaded the Employment Development Department administrative law judge to reject EDD efforts to classify the auctioneers as employees of the auto auction.

The important decision comes on the heels of a new state law, SB 459, that imposes new penalties for businesses that “willfully” misclassify workers as independent contractors.  In addition to penalties of potentially $5,000 to $25,000 per infraction, the new statute requires the offending employer to announce their “willfull” misclassification on their website for a year.  The new penalties are in addition to existing taxes and penalties that are due upon a redetermination by EDD.  The state Labor and Workforce Development Agency will enforce the new law effective January 1.

The silver lining for employers in the increased focus on misclassification of workers is the IRS’ recent announcement of an “amnesty” on penalties and interest attributable to a misclassification problem.  The “Voluntary Worker Classification Settlement Program” is available for employers who meet the eligibility requirements, which include 1) consistent prior treatment of the workers as independent contractors, 2) issuance of 1099’s for the workers in controversy, and 3) not already the subject of audit by the IRS or a state agency.  Under the program, the IRS will waive certain penalties and interest in consideration of the employer treating the workers as employees going forward and paying a little over 1% of the wages paid to the contractor for the past three years.  Consult the IRS’ website for further information regarding this program.

The new law raises the stakes for an innocent misclassification of a worker as an independent contractor.  Employers should consult with counsel if they have any questions regarding their current classification of any workers as an independent contractor.

The Miles Law Firm, A Professional Corporation, practices civil and business law, including extensive work in the auto and aviation industries. For more information, please email the Firm at mileslaw@milesfirm.com or review the Firm’s website.

dmv car dealer complaint form

Problems with a vehicle purchase can DMV help me

Filing a Complaint with the Department of Motor Vehicles

You should know that DMV has limited resources to review and catalog these complaints.

Your information will be reviewed by Investigations and Audits and/or Licensing Operations.

Not all complaints are investigated.

Use the (Record of Complaint Form (INV 172A)

to register a complaint regarding a new or used vehicle dealer, a broker, dismantler,

registration service, vehicle verifier, driving school or traffic violator school.

Only written complaints, submitted on this form, are accepted.

DMV investigators conduct selective investigations of these licensees and their activities,

based upon the department’s priorities, patterns of misconduct and the availability of personnel.

Your complaint will be kept on file in case an investigation is undertaken against this party or firm.

If this occurs, you may be contacted.

You should know that, even if DMV conducts an investigation, this can only result in criminal or administrative action against the licensee,

and may not result in any monetary judgment or award to you or other victims.

Your only recourse to recover a financial loss, or to seek another remedy,

is to consider filing a civil claim against the licensee.

test drive coverage

all licensed car dealers must maintain

used car dealer insurance

and dealer license plates

to operate their vehicles on the road

+++++

most dealers offer test drives to potential customers

if the dealer secures a copy of the prospective buyers

drivers license and insurance card on an existing vehicle

and

issues a letter of permission to the prospective buyer

( such test drive is legal for up to 7 days )

11580 of the insurance code goes into effect

+++++

11580 of the insurance code

makes the prospective buyers insurance primary coverage

and makes the dealer insurance secondary coverage

so that

if your prospective buyer stacks up the dealer car on a test drive

the dealer can make claim on the prospective buyers insurance

+++++

protect yourself with the proper paperwork on ALL test drives

good luck

thx

will rogue used car dealer beepi.com survive government scrutiny ???

beepi is a new used car dealer model

and using their wealthy uber backers combined with disruptive technology

they are attempting to change the current used car automotive sales industry

their rogue actions and blatant violation of the basic car dealer rules

have made dmv officials at the highest levels take notice

+++

the biggest problem with disruptive technology

and the used car automotive sales industry

is a nearly 100 year tradition of the government

building strong consumer protections into the law

which beepi and crew, with arrogance has chosen to bypass

+++

here are a few of the basic flaws with the beepi.com model

+++

their los altos location is unlicensed

their santa cruz location is virtually empty and not a working retail location as licensed by the dmv

their consignment agreement does not comply with current california dmv regulations

+++

the glaring omission of a federal buyers guide posted on each vehicle offered for sale

could merit a $16k fine per vehicle sold if so ordered by the DMV or the FTC

this violation alone could derail beepi.com and its disruptive technology model

+++

none of the vehicles advertised on the beepi.com website have buyers guides posted

a buyers guide must be posted on every vehicle offered for sale by licensed dealers

the offering of any used vehicle requires a current smog, safety check and vehicle history report

BEFORE the car is offered for sale

the division 12 safety check must be conducted at arms length from the dealership

by a licensed mechanic, and at last check beepi.com and carsavvy inc do not have a current BAR license

+++

current advertising rules require the posting of a license plate or the last 6 of the VIN on each ad

current advertising rules require the posting of each ad at the dealers licensed location

current advertising rules prohibit the black friday and cyber monday offers made by beepi.com

+++

current dmv rules only allow deliveries by licensed autobrokers of brokered vehicles

beepi.com is the apparent licensed dealer of record

and does not have a current autobroker endorsement on their license

the beepi.com disruptive technology model bypasses the licensed location entirely

and makes delivery to the customer bypassing significant notice postings required in each dealership

+++

beepi.com advertises certified used cars using an

improper certified vehicle designation

as per the car buyer bill of rights enacted in july 2006

+++

as the premier provider of car dealer education in california

we believe it is paramount for a $65M used car dealer startup

to adhere to the same rules and regulations imposed on every other car dealer

+++

giving allowances to the wealth or arrogance of beepi.com

and their disruptive technology model

is a slap in the face

to every law abiding car dealer we have ever taught

and really sets the stage for total chaos for the dmv licensing folks

+++

im sure there will be more to follow on the beepi.com story
