MADISON MAN SENTENCED TO FEDERAL PRISON FOR TAX EVASION
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that FRANK DiMARTINO, 68, of Madison, was sentenced today by United States District Janet C. Hall in Bridgeport to seven months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for tax evasion.
According to court documents and statements made in court, DiMARTINO was the president and sole shareholder of Tax II Inc., an accounting and tax return preparation business. During years 2001 through 2005, DiMARTINO operated Tax II from an office in his former residence in Orange. During that time period, DiMARTINO attempted to evade the corporate income taxes he owed on behalf of the business by claiming personal expenses as business expenses on Tax II’s corporate income tax returns. These expenses included home repair and maintenance expenses, vehicle expenses and expenses related to the in-ground pool at the residence.
DiMARTINO also failed to report the Tax II funds he used to pay these personal expenses as income on his individual income tax returns for 2001 through 2005. The total tax loss associated with DIMARTINO’s conduct is $146,728.
On May 6, 2009, DiMARTINO pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to evade taxes.
This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sandra S. Glover.
