Paola Couple Sentenced On Federal Tax Charge
TOPEKA, KAN. - The owners of a construction and remodeling business in Paola were sentenced Monday on a federal tax charge, Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said today.
Dan Casey, 41, Paola, Kan., was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison. His wife, Nicole Lynn Casey, 39, Paola, Kan., was sentenced to three years on supervised release. They were ordered to pay $102,000 in restitution.
The Caseys pleaded guilty to one count of filing false tax returns. They admitted failing to report some of their income from Pro-Built, a construction and remodeling business they owned in Paola.
From 2008 through 2011 they failed to report more than $347,000 in income, resulting in tax due of more than $102,000. Dan Casey also admitted paying cash to contractors who worked on his barn following a fire. He failed to report the payments to the Internal Revenue Service.
Beall commended the Internal Revenue Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Rich Hathaway for their work on the case.
