Retired Lawyer Indicted for Tax Evasion and Making a False Statement

News Release from US DoJ, Oregon, Oct 22, 2018 

PORTLAND, Ore. – On October 16, 2018, a federal grand jury in Portland charged retired attorney Bruce L. Lamon, of Hillsboro, Oregon, with evading $744,000 in personal income taxes.

Lamon is charged in a two-count indictment alleging he evaded payment of his taxes for calendar years 2008 through 2013 and failed to disclose rental income in an application to proceed In Forma Pauperis in a civil case he filed in federal court in 2016.

Between 2006 and 2012, Lamon worked as a commercial litigator at a law firm in Honolulu, Hawaii. Lamon retired in 2012 and moved to Hillsboro. Between November 2012 and December 2015, in the District of Oregon, Lamon is alleged to have committed numerous affirmative acts to evade his tax obligations. These acts include but are not limited to titling vehicles in his former spouse’s name and purchasing rental properties with cash using an LLC registered in Hawaii to conceal these assets from the IRS.

This case is being investigated by IRS Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) and prosecuted by Seth D. Uram, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon.

An indictment is only an accusation of a crime, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The attorney’ s office says while living in Oregon, Lamon between November 2012 and December 2015 titled vehicles in his former spouse’s name and purchased rental properties with cash using an LLC registered in Hawaii to conceal them from the IRS….
