Forsyth County Man Sentenced On Tax Charges

Greensboro, NC – Anna Mills Wagoner, United States Attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina, announced that JULIO SPIRO DIBBI from Forsyth County, North Carolina, was sentenced in federal court in Greensboro on May 27, 2010, by United States District Court Judge N. Carlton Tilley, Jr., to 30 months imprisonment, to be followed by one year of supervised release, and fined $60,000.00.

The grand jury indicted DIBBI on June 30, 2009, charging him with nine counts of willfully aiding the filing of false income tax returns and five counts of interfering with internal revenue laws for the tax years 2005 and 2006. On November 13, 2009, DIBBI pled guilty to counts one and two of the indictment. Count One charged that DIBBI knowingly claimed false Schedule A business deductions to include employee expenses, business travel, work telephone and uniform cleaning. Count Two charged DIBBI with corruptly endeavoring to obstruct and impede the tax laws by instructing a taxpayer to create a false mileage log to support the false exemption claimed on the 2005 income tax return.

By voluntarily pleading guilty, DIBBI waived his right to trial and he agreed to pay restitution to the government. Special Agent in Charge for the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation
Division, Jeannine A. Hammett, stated, “Taxpayers should be aware of the serious consequences facing those who file or aid in the filing of fraudulent tax returns. IRS-Criminal Investigation wants to send a strong message to unscrupulous return preparers who think they can get away with tampering with our nation's tax system."

The investigation was conducted by Special Agents for the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division.
