honestly being a small business owner myself.....f*ck the IRS.
I get why he did it, his money, his revenue, his business.
as long as the customer walks away satisfied then what the business owner does with his revenue is his business. End of. Especially if they pay in cash.
Pretty much every motorcycle shop (besides a main dealer) ive seen does something similar to this for cash because they are usually barely afloat anyways. Motorcycle industry in the USA is shit comparatively.
Lets not even start the conversation of what a tax/fee-ridden-hippie-land California is; so just keeping up with whatever avocado-tree hugging fee that they shove down your throat is a chore.
I will always give Kyle Racing and LDH my suspension business. they are the best in the biz.
Sucks that he got caught, a good accountant could have found ways to deduct or asset most of it back into the business or bought easily liquid assets to park the cash in without money orders.
basically this is just going to cost him lawyer money and a fine. It aint shit.
