that's a tough one. I punish for lying in addition to or instead of the actual thing they do. for example if they break something and then try to hide it or straight up lie about it. I express to them that I am disappointed that it is broke, but accidents happen, but since you lied about it or tried to hide it you lose your ipod or whatever for two weeks. or if they get in trouble at school and lie about it I talk the situation out with them and then punish for the lying about it.

My 15 y/o son will lie and sneak if he thinks he's going to get into trouble. My 10 y/o daughter doesn't lie much at all and if she does she feels guilty about it and will come tell me later that she didn't tell me the whole truth. That has weight with me and usually she will not get in trouble and we will talk it out
