Vegas Businessman Eyed For Tax Evasion

Las Vegas, NV) A high-rolling Las Vegas businessman already accused of defrauding investors of $191 million is facing new allegations that he failed to pay federal income tax on more than $87 million in unreported income.

An indictment handed up Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas accuses Ramon DeSage of four counts of wire fraud stemming from casino and bank wire transfers totaling $15.1 million, and four counts of failing to pay nearly $31 million in taxes from 2006-2009.

DeSage previously pleaded not guilty to fraud charges in the Ponzi scheme case and is being held on house arrest.

He’s due for arraignment Aug. 15 on the new charges.

Prosecutors allege DeSage used his companies including Cadeau Express, Beryt and Merits Incentives to defraud investors.
