Fairfield Resident Sentenced To Federal Prison For Tax Evasion


Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ROBERT JOSEPH PARKER, 52, of Fairfield, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven to 18 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for tax evasion.

According to court documents and statements made in court, PARKER earned income by providing information technology services to various businesses.  Between 1996 and 2012, PARKER did not pay any federal income tax on approximately $2 million of income he received in his own name, and in the name of his alter ego entity known as Success Zone, LLC.

As part of his sentence, PARKER was ordered to pay $1,869,419 in taxes, interest and penalties for himself personally for tax years 1996 through 2012, and for Success Zone, LLC, for tax years 2003 through 2012.

On March 5, 2014, PARKER waived his right to indictment and pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion.

This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division and was prosecuted by Senior Litigation Counsel Richard J. Schechter.
