A 61-year-old Wahoo man has been placed on probation and ordered to repay $110,000 in back taxes after being convicted of filing a false tax return.
Federal prosecutors say Kent Jay Trembly will serve six months of house arrested under the sentence handed down by Senior Federal District Judge Richard Kopf.
Prosecutors say Trembly filed a Form 1040 for the year 2006 which failed to report more than a million dollars of gross receipts involving legal, veterinarian, and investment broker services. A Form 1040 for the tax year of 2007 failed to report more than $200,000 in income.
Specifically, Trembly failed to indicate Schedule C income and gross receipts from his business activity during the calendar tax year of 2006, failing to report gross receipts of $1,110,982.77. That resulted in a reduction of business income of approximately $188,611 and a determined tax loss to the United States of approximately $50,507, according to prosecutors.
The 2007 filing resulted in a reduction of business income of approximately $203,493.56 and a determined tax loss to the Unites States, of approximately $59,867.58, according to prosecutors.
