Brooklyn Owner of Sportswear Distribution Business Pleads Guilty to Tax Evasion

The Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced today that Harry Neuhoff, a resident of Brooklyn, N.Y., has pleaded guilty to tax evasion.

 

According to documents filed with the court, Neuhoff was president and an owner of EVA TEES Inc., formerly of Long Island City, N.Y. and presently located in Piscataway, N.J. From approximately 2006 to 2008, Neuhoff manipulated EVA TEES accounts through an accounting software program to delete cash sales from the general ledger accounts maintained on the computer accounting system. As a result, Neuhoff filed  false corporate tax returns on behalf of EVA-TEES with the IRS that underreported the gross receipts of EVA TEES.  Neuhoff’s conduct also correspondingly resulted in his filing of false personal income tax returns with the IRS for those years.  According to the documents filed with the court, Neuhoff underreported the gross receipts of EVA TEES through computer manipulations by at least $1.5 million. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 8, 2013 before U.S. District Court Judge Edward Korman.  

 

Neuhoff faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison, three years of supervised release, a $250,000 fine and a $100 special assessment. He has agreed to pay restitution to the IRS.

 

 The case was investigated by IRS-Criminal Investigation. Trial Attorneys Mark Kotila and Karen E. Kelly of the Justice Department’s Tax Division prosecuted this case.
