Financial Planner Sentenced On Tax Convictions

A financial planner from Richfield was sentenced to eight months of home confinement after previously pleading guilty to two counts of willful failure to file tax returns, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Darryl Williams, Special Agent in Charge of the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigations office in Cincinnati.

Jon D. Zapisek, 41, worked as a financial planner for John Hancock Financial between 2006 and 2010. During that time, he failed to report more than $600,000 in taxable income, which resulted in more than $100,000 in unpaid taxes, according to court documents.

Zapisek was also ordered to pay restitution.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin J. Roberts following an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigations.
