Neenah Dentist Pleads Guilty to Two Counts of Failing to Pay Income Tax

United States Attorney James L. Santelle for the Eastern District of Wisconsin announced that on March 6, 2015, Eugene Darkow (age 58) of Neenah, Wisconsin appeared in federal court in Green Bay and pleaded guilty to two counts of willfully failing to pay his federal income taxes. 

Darkow, who operates a dental practice in Neenah, filed tax returns for the years 2008 - 2011 on which he reported more than $1 million in income and owing more than $275,000 in taxes.  Darkow, however, failed to pay more than $200,000 of these taxes.  In fact, during the years 1998 - 2012, Darkow has failed to pay approximately $450,000 in federal income taxes.

The charges to which Darkow pleaded guilty each carry a maximum possible penalty of up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.  Darkow is scheduled to be sentenced on June 1, 2015.  He was released on bond pending his sentencing.

This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Matthew L. Jacobs.
