A man who orchestrated a $10 million tobacco excise tax evasion scheme against the State of Washington, engaged in money-laundering, and evaded $850,000 in federal income taxes has been sentenced to a little over 2 years in prison and ordered to pay $5 million in restitution.  Through his company, TC MAC, Hyung Il Kwon of Nevada purchased significant quantities of tobacco in cash, failed to report the purchases to the state, and subsequently resold the products for cash.  In order to avoid alerting the state to large cash deposits, Kwon then laundered the money by writing checks in exchange for large amounts of cash.  Kwon has a prior state conviction for similar charges.  USAO WDWA
