ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced that today Anselmo Barilla, 48, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of filing a false tax return with the Internal Revenue Service, was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $56,152 by U.S. District Court Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard A. Resnick, who handled the case, stated that the defendant was self-employed as a mason in Rochester. For the tax years 2007 and 2008, Barilla underreported the amount of income he had received from his mason business. The total amount of unreported income was $171,364, resulting in the failure to pay federal taxes in the amount of $56,152.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation Division, under the direction of Shantelle P. Kitchen, Special Agent in Charge.
