Former Bar Owner Sentenced for Tax Evasion

An investigation by treasury inspector general agents found that the owner owed $49,916 in back employee withholding taxes when he sold the restaurant in October 2006. Rather than pay the taxes, he deposited the proceeds from the sale into his wife’s checking account, according to charges filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Ohio.

When the IRS filed tax levies against that account and a second account in the owner’s name, the owner obtained a release of levy on the second account, and then allegedly used it to fabricate a fraudulent release of levy for his wife’s account. Upon receiving the fabricated release, the bank released the funds, which the defendant directed his wife to liquidate that same day in cash and official bank checks, officials said.

The owner pleaded guilty to one count of corrupt endeavor to impede an employee of the United States acting in an official capacity under IRS laws. In addition to probation and home confinement, U.S. District Judge Thomas Rose ordered the owner to pay restitution of $49,916 to the IRS.
