Fraud charges dropped after man pleads guilty to tax evasion

A Massachusetts man has had two fraud charges dropped after agreeing to plead guilty to tax evasion. The 56-year-old man will now face between two and two and a half years in prison, rather than five. In a recent plea hearing, the man admitted to three counts of tax evasion during the years 2007, 2008 and 2009. His sentence is expected to be decided at a federal courthouse in Boston on Jan 9.

Restaurant seized for alleged failure to pay taxes

Massachusetts residents who enjoyed a restaurant located in Andover for the last decade will be sad to hear that the establishment is no longer in business. The demise of Dylan's Bar & Grill is the result of a tax collection case instituted by the state against it.

3 sentenced for financial crimes

Massachusetts residents may have heard of the conviction of three men for financial crimes related to a failed bank in Georgia. Two of the defendants in this case held prominent banking positions, and reports say that their actions may have contributed to the banks failure.

Former attorney convicted of tax fraud

Massachusetts readers may be interested to know that a former attorney was convicted in federal court. Prosecutors called it the biggest case of criminal tax fraud in United States history. The case was based on the claim that he and other men ran a 10-year long scheme that netted one billion dollars in fake losses and $7 billion in phony tax deductions. His co-defendant was acquitted by the jury.

IRS contract workers delinquent on taxes

People who work for the Internal Revenue Service in Massachusetts and at its other locations around the country are required to pay income taxes like everyone else. Unlike other federal agencies, the IRS requires its all of its workers to be in full compliance by timely filing their returns and either paying in full all amounts owed or entering into approved installment arrangements. However, a report recently released by the agency's inspector general showed that nearly 700 contract workers owe a combined total of $5.4 million in taxes. Over half of those are supposedly ineligible to work for the IRS because they have not enrolled in an installment plan to get them caught up.
