An owner of an ice rink and sports facility was sentenced to 48 years in prison for not paying $790,000 of employment taxes to the IRS from 2012 to 2015. The position of the IRS is that business owners and operators who choose not to pay the United States tax money they withheld from their employees’ wages are stealing from the US Treasury and should expect to face prosecution and incarceration.
In addition, the owner will face three years supervised release and pay $793,145.00 in restitution plus a $75,000.00 fine. Do not wait until it is too late. If you have not paid your payroll taxes, call us for a free consultation to discuss ways to fix it before it is too late.
