Failure To File Federal Taxes Charges Levied Against North Little Rock Man

LITTLE ROCK Christopher R. Thyer, Christopher R. Thyer, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, and Christopher A. Henry, Special Agent in Charge, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Investigation, Nashville Field Office, announced that an Information was filed, on Gregory Warren, age 52, a resident of North Little Rock, for five counts of failure to file his federal income tax returns with the IRS.

According to the information that was filed, Warren received taxable income of $199,165.00, $228,291.00, $108,198.00, $80,336.00 and $100,985.00, for tax years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, respectfully, which required him to file federal income tax returns with the IRS for each year. Knowing he was required to file, Warren willfully failed to file his personal tax returns for 2007 through 2011.

"The IRS Criminal Investigation Division takes tax violations of law very seriously," said Special Agent in Charge Christopher A. Henry of the Nashville Field Office. “It is important for the American taxpayers to have confidence that when they file and pay their taxes, their neighbors and co-workers are doing the same.”

The statutory penalty for failure to file federal income tax returns is not more than 1 year imprisonment and/or not more than a $25,000 fine with not more than 1 year supervised release.

The investigation was conducted by IRS Criminal Investigation.
