Mechanicsburg Man Sentenced For Tax Evasion
The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Thomas C. Holloway, age 46, of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced today by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner for attempted income tax evasion for 2008. Holloway was sentenced to six months in prison, six months home confinement and one year of supervised release. Judge Conner further ordered that $80,000 in restitution be paid to the IRS.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Holloway previously was employed by Spherion (an IT firm based in Mechanicsburg and formerly known as Intellimark and Technisource) between 2001 and 2009 and he embezzled company funds which were not reported on his income tax returns. Holloway previously was charged by local authorities with theft by deception in connection with the embezzlements and was sentenced in 2010 in state court to probation and ordered to pay $125,000 in restitution to Spherion. The current tax charges allege that the tax loss to the IRS was $80,000 for the years 2003-2009.
The case was investigated by the Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS and was prosecuted by Senior Litigation Counsel Bruce Brandler.
