Asphalt Paver Goes to Jail for Failing to File Tax Returns

May 9, 2012

Andrew Robert Stanley, 44, formerly of Clarkston, Michigan but now residing in Monroe, New York, was sentenced to 21 months imprisonment and one year of supervised release for willfully failing to file his 2004 through 2008 federal income tax returns, United States Attorney Barbara L. McQuade announced.

United States Attorney McQuade was joined in the announcement by Special Agent in Charge Erick Martinez, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation.

In addition, United States Magistrate Judge Mona K. Majzoub also ordered Stanley to pay a special assessment of $125 and restitution to the Internal Revenue Service of $259,379.

Stanley pleaded guilty to five counts of failing to file personal tax returns in October 2011. According to court records, during 2004 through 2008 tax years, Stanley earned income by working in the State of Michigan as a private asphalt paver. During this time period, Stanley received gross income totaling over $950,000 and purposely failed to file federal income tax returns reporting his income over the five year period. In addition, Stanley failed to pay over $259,379 in tax due and owing to the Internal Revenue Service.

"The law is clear on the issue of taxable income and who is required to file and pay taxes. Apparently, Stanley thought that the law did not apply to him," said Special Agent in Charge Erick Martinez.

The investigation of this case was conducted by special agents of the Internal Revenue Service, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ross MacKenzie.
