PITTSBURGH – A resident of Dubois, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of Filing False Tax Returns, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The three-count indictment, returned on May 2, named Gary E. Mills as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on April 15, 2015, April 15, 2014, and August 1, 2014, Mills filed false joint tax returns by intentionally under reporting his and his wife’s income to the IRS.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of nine years in prison, a fine of $750,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Shardul S. Desai is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigations and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
