Morgantown resident convicted on Tax Evasion Charge

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Mitch BROZIK, a 52-year old Morgantown, West Virginia, resident appeared in United States District Court before Magistrate Judge John S. Kaull and entered a plea of guilty to “Obstructing and Impeding the Administration of the Internal Revenue Service.” Between 2005 and 2010, BROZIK concealed a corporate bank account that he used for personal expenses, providing inaccurate tax information to his personal accountants. BROZIK also made false statements to IRS Special Agents about the accuracy of his personal tax returns, his knowledge of personal expenses charged to corporate credit cards, and the existence of a corporate bank account that was not included in corporate records. BROZIK, who is free on bond, faces up to 3 years in prison.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew R. Cogar and investigated by the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigations.
