The owners of a cleaning company serving luxury hotels in Southern California and Nevada have pleaded guilty in connection with a nearly $7 million insurance and tax scam.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Hyok “Steven” Kwon and his wife, Woo “Stephanie” Kwon, owned Irvine-based Good Neighbor Services.
They were accused of concealing the existence of 800 employees over nearly a decade to avoid paying millions in payroll taxes and workers’ compensation insurance.
Steven Kwon pleaded guilty to felony charges related to fraud and employment tax evasion last month. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Several others were charged in the case.
