Hebron Man Who Filed False Tax Returns Is Sentenced


Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ALAN MISKUNAS, 52, of Hebron, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Michael P. Shea in Hartford to three years of probation for filing false tax returns.  MISKUNAS also was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.

According to court documents and statements made in court, MISKUNAS formerly owned Bolton Flooring Center in Bolton.  During the 2003 and 2004 tax years, MISKUNAS filed income tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service that under-reported Bolton Flooring Center’s gross business receipts by approximately one-half, resulting in his failure to pay more than $64,000 in personal income taxes due on that unreported income.  MISKUNAS also did not file tax returns for the 2005 and 2006 tax years and failed to pay more than $88,000 in taxes owed for those years.

MISKUNAS is required to pay $152,417 in back taxes, plus applicable interest and penalties.

On February 6, 2013, MISKUNAS pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false tax return.

This matter was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Henry K. Kopel.
