leifertlaw April 29, 2010 Courts

Our South Florida criminal defense attorneys have learned that a Palm Beach County man has pleaded guilty to filing false personal income tax returns. The United States Attorney’s Office announced the plead on Friday.

The man owns a tax preparation and bookkeeping service and was indicted on three counts after he admitted to filing false personal tax returns with the IRS. The false tax returns understated his income between 2004 and 2006, saving him $77,000. As part of his plea agreement, the defendant has agreed to cooperate with the IRS and file amended tax returns for the period in question.

He is scheduled for sentencing on July 23 and faces up to nine years in prison (three years per count).
