September 21, 2012

DALLAS — Jack Britton Kyle was sentenced late yesterday by U.S. District Judge Jane J. Boyle to 30 months in federal prison following his guilty plea in January 2012 to one count of tax evasion, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas. In addition, Judge Boyle ordered that Kyle pay $380,723 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for taxes due and owing beginning in tax year 1999. Kyle must surrender to the Bureau of Prisons by November 14, 2012.

The factual resume filed in the case states that during calendar year 2005, Kyle received approximately $160,280 in taxable income. Kyle acknowledges that based on that taxable income for that year, he owed $34,453 in federal income tax. Kyle admits that he willfully attempted to evade the income due and owing by: 1) failing to make an income tax return on or before April 17, 2006, as required by law; 2) failing to pay the IRS the income tax due; and 3) concealing and attempting to conceal his true income from the proper authorities.

According to the three-count indictment returned on April 5, 2011, Kyle is a resident of Rockwall, Texas.

The case was investigated by IRS Criminal Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael C. Elliott.
