New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Michael Schmidt said, “Frank and Shannon Inzano criminally evaded their taxes, starving our communities of support for vital public services. We will continue to work with all our partners in law enforcement to hold accountable those who try to game the system by committing tax fraud and other crimes against honest New Yorkers.”
The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, the Putnam County District Attorney’s Office, New York State Police, and the New York State Department of Transportation today announced guilty pleas from the operators of Top Notch Towing in Mahopac, NY. Frank Inzano, 47, pleaded guilty to multiple felonies including criminal tax fraud, larceny, and attempted weapons possession. His wife Shannon, 42, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges. The couple, both of Carmel, NY, were arrested on May 21, 2019. Top Notch Towing had a contract with the NYS Department of Transportation to tow vehicles at a set rate from the Taconic Parkway. In response to an allegation of overcharging, New York State Police launched an investigation that determined that the couple had charged exorbitant rates. State Police executed a search warrant and seized business records, cash, and guns. Tax Department investigators reviewed the couple’s financial records when it became clear they were underreporting income.
