Steven Matthew Langley also known as Steven Langley has never paid income tax as he says that Tax on income is voluntary in USA and he will not participate.
 
Steven Langleys is a case of 

1) evading taxes
2) misrepresentation and concealment putting assets in another person's name
3) concealing records of income
4) claiming deductions that are bogus
5) lying about ownership of assets
6) hiding assets overseas


Steven Langley was born on 18 Nov 1960. He is 51.
He has had several different businesses, has been self employed since his early 20s and has never paid taxes.  His base income per month is US $85,000 plus commissions from the sales of his software which is 20% and is renegotiable and will continue to get him very comfortable monthly income for the rest of his life. 

Steven started CTI Architects in USA over 12 years ago, where he partnered with big companies like IEX, etc. The website address is www.ctiarchitects.com. Alex Sashin developed call centre software for Steven when he worked with him at CTI Architects. Steven won copyright for that software in his court case against Alex Sashin after Alex could not afford to fight anymore in courts and handed the software at a minimal amount. Court records are public. That software continues to make Steven money. 
 
In 2007 Steven merged his company CTI Architects with QPC Group limited - a UK based multinational company. In Dec 2011 there was a merger deal with Steven Langleys company CTI Architects and ethosIQ. Both of these mergers have proved to be immensely profitable for Steven. Steven has NOT been effected by credit crunch ever. Stevens net worth is in millions. His assets are

1) His house in Mooresville, North Carolina 
2) Another house in Charlotte, North Carolina
4) Hundreds of acre ranch in Arizona
5) Four other properties in California and Arizona 
6) Toys, Cars - Lotus, Jeep, etc, Boats, helicopter, four seater plane.
7) 500 Gold Bullions. 

All his assets, properties, boat, cars, etc are in his mother Lois Ann Langleys name.
All his assets, properties, boat, cars, etc are fully paid. He always pays cash upfront for everything. Steven does not own a single thing in his name as this way IRS can not prove he owns anything. He only has two bank accounts overseas in his name with $30000000 in it and 500 gold coins in safe.

He has owned property and lived in different places in California, before moving to and purchasing different properties in Arizona, in Phoenix, Mesa, Flagstaff, etc. before he purchased the properties in North Carolina and moved there in 2007. His money overseas is in Bank in China. China beats switzerland in the security it provides its premier customers, like Steven.
 
The address is:
HSBC Bank (China) Company Limited
22 - 38 Floor, HSBC Building, Shanghai 8 Century Avenue, Pudong Shanghai 200120 People's Republic of China
Telephone: 86 (21) 3888 3888 
 
He has a property in China and the address is:
RM 1703 Shen Lan Apartment Nanshan Shenzhen China 518000 

Stevens contact details are as follows: 
US cell phone (520) 241-1443
UK cell phone 0795 658 6659

He has been questioned by IRS for many years yet gets away every time.  IRS charged him and made him liable to pay some money, but they have not had any money from him.

Filing Type: Federal Tax Lien Entity Type:

Amount Liability: $153,432.00

His reply is I am not evading taxes. I choose not to participate. BUT isn't it illegal to hide assets and not file tax return?? His reply is it is illegal to lie on tax return, not if I choose not to participate. Will he ever go to jail for evading taxes?

According to him "taxes in US are voluntary. It is illegal to have tax on income and I am not participating as I am not required by law to pay taxes. There is no law that says there is tax on income. IRS cant prove I own anything. I have no money or anything in my name.

His lifestyle does not match the income he declares/ or has not declared in years. He earns more in a month than most people make in years and can easily afford to pay taxes! He just doesn't want to pay taxes and has found a loophole in the system which he is exploiting. 

While the rest of the country is working hard and having to pay taxes, he is accumulating more and more and hiding in overseas Bank accounts and in his mothers name - everything in US -properties, cars, boats, toys, etc- are in Lois Langleys name.

IRS should check everything under Lois Langleys name and ask how a retired grandmother could own all these assets.

Alex’s response regarding the ownership of the Collection Service

AUTHOR: Alex - ()

Jon,

I wanted to thank you for adding me (Alex Sashin) to this notice, but please let me clear up a few things for you.

First Steven did not sell CTI Architects to QPC in 2007, he did so when he transferred his business assets to them in April 2009.  QPC asked to purchase CTI Architects for several million dollars back in 2005 but they wanted me to give up my patent rights in the process. I refused and Steve and CTI Architects tried to sue me.  Many court cases and several years later I was awarded full control of my patent rights.

I was contracted as an independent contractor for CTI Architects on several projects in which they were the prime contractor.  Payment for my services and software licensing went through CTI Architects to me and many other people that CTI contracted with to do call Center work at the Client sites.  License fees were paid to CTI Architects by the clients and were then to be split 50/50.  When I asked to see the books, I was shut down by Steve and locked out of the company. To hide his income from me, Steve went on a smear campaign against me.

Steve’s real problem and also that of CTI Architects was that neither owned or had rights to any of my patented Intellectual property.  They did not own the rights to any of the collection Services software or any of my other patents at that time.  First let me state that Steve Langley was not the President, Treasure, Secretary or any other officer of CTI Architects when I began working with him.  He was the puppet master behind the scene pulling all the strings directing the company, but his wife at the time was Arlene Neuman and it was her name and Steve’s Mother’s name on all the bank accounts and State Corporate Records from 2000 to 2005.  Steve had to hire and attorney to sue Arlene at the divorce, but she dropped everything, gave in, when he threatened to sick the IRS on her for the money CTI Architects made from the sale of the collector services.  Steve was not the President of CTI Architects until we were offered a buyout by QPC in 2005. He needed my technology to complete the sale, and I would not give it up.

Steve did what Serve does best, he changed the rules and restructured the company. Arlene was out and my wife Jenny Barkova was given 49% of CTI Architects. In typical Steve fashion we were to receive 50 % but on the paperwork he fudged and made a mistake and it only came out 49%. These patents were of my own creation; CTI Architects was just a vessel to sell what I had created. Steve and CTI sold the services and acted as the project manager for their share of the 50% licensing fee and any labor hours he or his other staff worked.   By managing the projects he would skim a little of the top from each engineer he had in the field, but my wife and I never saw any of that income.

In 2005 with my refusal to sell, he positioned himself with the clients and other vendors as the owner of all the technology and shut me down from any communication with them.  When I refused to renew License keys for the nonpayment by CTI Architects to me for my products and time, I knew there was trouble ahead and started to prepare vendors for the coming battle. My Attorney sent letters written to Nice, IEX and QPC about the ownership issues, but they all went on deaf ear. They all sided with Steve and were sure he would win his battle with me on the patent rights. He had them all believing he was the sole owner of all of my personal IP.  

In 2009 he also sold CTI Architects to QPC without my knowledge as we were in the Lawsuit with him at the time.  The Court ruled in our favor, so I guess he needed to sell it quickly to insure he received his money from QPC. He also had Genesys breathing down his neck on what he told American Express about interactions. To be as bold as he could he also sold the complete company when my then wife owned 49% of CTI Architects.  She was given the 49% as a curtsey by Steve to ensure I would not take my patents to other companies. Steve came up with this plan to ensure that when we restructured the company he could tell Nice, IEX, and QPC I was an owner and therefore my products went with the company when he sold it to them. Boy was he surprised when the Judge ruled that I was still an independent contractor even though he had given her 49% of the company. 

I was only made aware of the CTI Architect sale to QPC in August of 2014 as my ex-wife and I are trying to go for equalization assets in our divorce.  I am still trying to see how much she was paid by Steve for her share of the company in 2009.  I know that she handed the share back to him in a settlement dated July of 2010.

I know this must of made executives at IEX, Nice and QPC nervous since they were publicly traded companies that purchased something that did not belong to them.  Maybe Steve never told them that he had no real ownership until January 2011.   

Second, I was the original creator and of the Collection Service and owned 100% of the patents. We won of first case with Steve and had a second case that would have charged him with patent infringements on my creations, but due to my wife and I getting a divorce I was force to raise cash quickly.  Steve offered me $85, 000 for half of my collector service (most went to my attorneys).  We made a settlement agreement and he paid payments to my Attorney Lance in Arizona for the 50% ownership rights.  He was suppose to pay off the entire amount by May 15 2010, but ended up paying late, so he did not get his 50% until all interest was paid on the late charges. He finally paid in January 2011.  During all the negotiations and declarations he and I submitted when we were at the multiple trials for ownership of the patents did he or his attorney ever inform me or my Attorney that he and my wife had sold the CTI Architects business to QPC.

Steve now owns 50% of the collection service I created. He had the patent right service put it into his name so that QPC would not have any right to it. Remember he sold CTI Architects in 2009 to QPC based on the Customer Base and products and services offered by CTI Architects.

CTI Architects, QPC, NICE - IEX or even myself has access to the raw source code for the collector service any longer, it was lost years ago and it was written in an old software language that spoke to older transaction  servers to do the processing.  What the users of the current collector services have is the ability to use license keys to access my old complied software services and redirect the transactions to a database that then reads and reports the data and places it into tables.  He does not have the source code, just the compiled software which he now sells through his partnership with ethos IQ.  I am not sure what happened with QPC and that deal. I use to see where QPC purchased them on their website, nut not all I find on the web is where Steve has merged with ethos IQ.  I know Steve was hired as a consultant for QPC making a considerable amount of money on the sell to QPC and then as the projects management for the clients.  He even received some money off the sale of license keys through maintenance agreements outside of QPC.  Especially in mid 2009 when they were all email and writing me asking and begging me for my help to fix problems left by Steve and CTI.  I always wonder if QPC and IEX knew about those incidents and whether or not he was paid or they were paid for the services, I know I was not. I know that Nice is now licensing the software and using it for their clients.

Our agreement allowed him to use the 50% rights to service CTI Architects clients and make his own revenue.  Revenue that we do not share even though I have the other 50% rights to the compiled software. How he, QPC and now ethos IQ account for their revenue is not something I am aware of at this time, nor is it my problem. 

Steve and I have always had issues about what he owed me.    He positioned me as the bad guys with an attitude with clients of CTI Architect when I would not give him licenses keys unless he paid me my proper share for my patented service. He then hired someone break my license code software so that he could resell my patented compiled software without notifying me or paying me at all for the software.  I have worked almost for free the last two years of my time with CTI Architects trying to clean up the mess Steve made with the clients integration.  I felt compelled to do so as it was my software and my wife’s name on the other 49% of the CTI Architects shares of ownership.

I have always wondered why Steve lived such a secret life and had everything he owned in his mother’s or brother’s name.  For years he used my address in California for his Driver’s License address.  I wonder if he reported his income the State of California Tax office. When he lived here in California.

When he was married to my wife’s sister Mila (for the few years required so that she could get permanent residency in the USA) she asked me the same thing.  Steven has had the same problem over and over and over again of who owns what, gets what and makes what.  His wife poor wife Arlene Newman in Arizona had to go through hell, and now I understand he has the same problem with his current wife in Houston.

Maybe we should all learn that putting companies, bank accounts and other assets into your wife’s names is not a good way to do business.  I am starting completely from scratch to rebuild my life after wife.

A buddy of mine told me recently that Steve is trying to build a million dollar house on land next to the one he owns in Tanglewood near down town Houston, by the Galleria, but that his wife from China was upset about what he was doing with it because the house is in her name. 

Thanks again for the shout out Jon, I hope this helps clear up a few issues with CTI Architects and how they worked when I was involved.

To MartyMarsh, you wrote "Most big money cheats and steals,and putting something in an other persons name does'nt take away the tax burden,it just shifts it to another person." That is correct for most cases, not the ones who debate on point of not having to pay tax on income as he does and shift and hide assets abroad.  

You wrote "I'm sure a call or email to the IRS would take care of it.It's all about proof,not just talking about it." I agree it is all about proof as IRS knows, but a phone call doesn't resolve it! 

To Ramjet, true writing all this info here is useless. No IRS doesnt monitor this site. And yes IRS has a whistleblower number, but only one person has been made to pay by whistle blower program in three years and the informer has yet to get paid. IRS takes their time of anywhere from 2 years to few years to informers. Anyway it is not about getting paid for informing, thats why haven't gone down whistleblower route. It is about breaking laws.

Response to MartyMarsh - Stillwater (United States of America)

To answer your questions in the order received.

Firstly, No it is not the case of "green eyed monster." Could be least concerned.

Secondly, he did very shady dirty business dealings which made us have huge losses. He was unreliable and could not be counted on doing what he said.

Thirdly, Washington doesnt always catch people. Specially people like him who claim that they "choose not to participate in taxes, because of 16th amendment clause, etc."
IRS has sometimes left these people alone. I wonder why. 

Yet he is still breaking many laws -
1) Not declaring his income.
2) Concealing his income records
3) Hiding assets in other peoples name. - his mother.
4) Hiding assets abroad

His reply is I am not evading taxes. I choose not to participate. 

BUT isn't it illegal to hide assets and not file tax return??


His reply is it is illegal to lie on tax return, not if I choose not to participate. 

Will he ever go to jail for evading taxes?

He says  "taxes in US are voluntary. It is illegal to have tax on income and I am not participating as I am not required by law to pay taxes. There is no law that says there is tax on income. IRS cant prove I own anything. I have no money or anything in my name.
