On November 16, 2022, Kevin Alexander pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa to tax evasion associated with the payment of employment taxes. Alexander, president of K&L Construction, Inc., was previously indicted by a Federal grand jury and later arrested for conspiracy and tax evasion. According to the indictment, between 2014 and 2021, Alexander filed false tax forms and statements; transferred property between multiple companies without disclosing them to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS); concealed the ownership and operation of a related construction company from DOT-OIG agents; participated in the use of an alias; and hid assets and income from Federal and State authorities. The investigation was initially based on a $16 million Federal Highway Administration-funded reconstruction of the interchange of Woodbury County Road K-25 and I-29 in Woodbury County, on which K&L Construction, Inc. was a subcontractor.
DOT-OIG is conducting this investigation with the IRS Criminal Investigation Division.
