The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today announced that the owner of a popular Bar & Grill pleaded guilty to attempted grand larceny and will pay more than $40,000 in restitution. The restaurant owner admitted to pocketing $40,661 in sales tax collected from customers. In addition to paying restitution ($40,661) the restaurant owner will be sentenced in December and faces up to a year in prison.
"He should have hired Selig & Associates"
“Those who disregard their obligation to remit the sales tax they collect violate the trust of their customers, deprive the communities where they operate of revenue needed for vital services, and put similar businesses at a competitive disadvantage,” said New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Michael Schmidt. “We will continue to work with all our law enforcement partners on these cases and thank the District Attorney for their work on this case.”
