The provincial revenue agency announced even more tax-fraud charges — nearly 1,000 — just one day later against another family-run construction empire.
Revenue Quebec and Quebec's anti-corruption unit said Thursday that Frank Catania and Associates, as well as its administrators and some employees, were among those facing 989 charges.
The announcement came just one day after another former construction boss, Antonio Accurso, was targeted by more than 900 charges.
The agency said fines announced Thursday amount to more than $12.5 million and they'll also be asking for jail time, the maximum penalty being two years.
The alleged infractions by the Catania group occurred between 2005 and 2009 and involve tax fraud on public construction contracts.
