Las Vegas Man Sentenced For $5M Payroll Tax Scam

A Las Vegas man who bilked dozens of small businesses out of more than $5 million with a phony payroll company scheme was sentenced Monday to seven years and three months in prison, authorities said.


Jason Newling, 47, who is a former Southern California resident, was sentenced in Los Angeles federal court after pleading guilty last year to wire fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States, according to a statement from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.
