Matthew Daniels, 46, filed false tax returns for 2007 and 2008, according to U.S. Attorney Patrick A. Miles Jr.
“In particular, Daniels under reported his gross receipts on his Schedule C for both 2007 and 2008,” Miles said.
“The 2008 tax return that Daniels filed was a fraudulent income tax return which under-reported gross receipts by $362,489,” he said.
At sentencing, Judge Robert Holmes Bell found that the government had determined that Daniels would be held responsible for under-reported gross receipts and owed taxes to the Internal Revenue Service of $119,003.
Daniels was also ordered to pay a mandatory $100 special assessment. Once he serves his prison term, he will be under a year of supervised release.
The charges on which he was sentenced were part of a Jan. 23 plea deal, Miles said.
