WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

A West Ashley restaurant owner is accused of hiring illegal aliens and failing to pay taxes to the Internal Revenue Service.

Dao Pin Lin, the owner of the Osaka Japanese & Chinese restaurant in West Ashley, has been charged with willful failure to truthfully collect and pay over withholding taxes, and a pattern of practice of employment of unauthorized aliens.

According to a federal indictment, on Jan. 21, 2011, Lin failed to truthfully account for and pay the IRS federal income taxes for the fourth quarter of 2010.

Court documents also state between October 2009 and February 2011, Lin "knowingly engaged in a pattern and practice of hiring" illegal aliens.

The federal indictment states the government is looking for a monetary judgement against Lin of a minimum of $399,619.

Lin's wife, Jin Xian Yang, also faces a federal charge of structuring domestic financial institutions.

A federal indictment reports that Yang withdrew more than $100,000 in a twelve month period and did so as "part of a pattern of illegal activity."

Authorities say Yang made at least 102 withdrawls from the restaurant's bank in amounts less than $10,000. According to court documents, Yang withdrew at least $999,600 from Jan. 2, 2007 through Dec. 21, 2009.
