David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that JOHN IVALDI, 59, of Palm Bay, Florida, and formerly of South Windsor, Connecticut, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven to three months of imprisonment, followed by three months of home confinement and one year of supervised release, for failing to pay more than $123,000 in federal income taxes.
According to court documents and statements made in court, IVALDI formerly owned and operated two businesses, Clean Fix Company, which provided maintenance services to commercial buildings, and MD Express, a delivery business. In 2004 and 2005, IVALDI received approximately $372,619 in income from the businesses, but failed to report that amount as gross receipts on his federal individual income tax returns.
As part of his sentence, IVALDI was ordered to pay $123,440 in back taxes, plus applicable interest and penalties.
On June 27, 2011, IVALDI waived his right to indictment and pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false federal tax return.
This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Elizabeth A. Latif.
