FORMER OWNER OF BOLTON FLOORING
BUSINESS PLEADS GUILTY TO FEDERAL TAX CHARGE
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ALAN MISKUNAS, 51, of Hebron, waived his right to indictment and pleaded guilty today before United States District Judge Michael P. Shea in Hartford to one count of filing a false tax return. MISKUNAS formerly owned Bolton Flooring Center in Bolton.
According to court documents and statements made in court, during the 2003 and 2004 tax years, MISKUNAS filed income tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service that under-reported Bolton Flooring Center’s gross business receipts by approximately one-half, resulting in his failure to pay more than $64,000 in personal income taxes due on that unreported income. MISKUNAS also did not file tax returns for the 2005 and 2006 tax years and failed to pay more than $88,000 in taxes owed for those years.
Judge Shea has scheduled sentencing for May 2, 2013, at which time MISKUNAS faces a maximum term of imprisonment of three years and a fine of up to $250,000. MISKUNAS also must make restitution to the IRS totaling more than $152,000, plus applicable interest and penalties.
This matter was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Henry K. Kopel.
