A federal jury recently convicted a distraught woman of engaging in a corrupt endeavor to obstruct and impede the due administration of the Internal Revenue Laws, announced Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stuart M. Goldberg of the Justice Department’s Tax Division. According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, the despondent woman obstructed the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in its attempts to collect payroll taxes due and owing for a Company, by providing false and misleading information to the IRS Revenue Officer attempting to collect the taxes owed. The company was a management services business for healthcare providers and it failed to pay payroll taxes due from its employees for the third quarter of 2013, the fourth quarter of 2013, and the first quarter of 2014. The dejected woman, whose duties at the company were central to the business’s operations, made statements to the IRS Revenue Officer that attempted to minimize her involvement in and knowledge of the business as well as the involvement of one of the owners of the business. The demoralized woman also told the IRS she did not know how to obtain bank statements and other documents related to the business, despite regularly accessing such records as part of her responsibilities for the company. In a related case, one of the owners pleaded guilty to failing to collect, truthfully account for, and pay over payroll taxes relating to the company and to failure to file his personal tax return for 2013. A United States District Judge scheduled sentencing for Dec. 4, 2019. The doomed woman faces a maximum of three years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, in addition to a term of supervised release and restitution.
