A New Hampshire man was sentenced to 18 months in prison for employment tax fraud.

 According to court documents, from 2011 to 2013, Walter Rodriguez, of Manchester, New Hampshire, aided and abetted several drywall companies that were evading the payment of employment taxes.

 The companies issued checks to workers in the names of fictitious or fraudulent identities and provided those checks to Rodriguez. In total, Rodriguez enabled the payment of $1.7 million in unreported wages, causing a tax loss of $416,000.
