Blair County Man Sentenced to 2 Years Prison for Tax Evasion

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - A resident of Hollidaysburg, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to 24 months in prison, three years’ supervised release and ordered to pay restitution to the Internal Revenue Service in the amount of $1,590,605, on his conviction of income tax evasion, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on James C. Faith.

According to information presented to the court, Faith filed an individual income tax return for the calendar year 2009, whereby he failed to report $1,785,036 in taxable income, resulting in an underpayment of $632,237 in income tax owed to the United States.

Assistant United States Attorney John J. Valkovci, Jr. prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Mr. Hickton commended the Internal Revenue Service/Criminal Investigation for the successful prosecution of Faith.
