An Omaha business owner has pleaded guilty to tax evasion.
37-year-old Becky Lynn Neeb, who owns Top Notch Charms, faces the possibility of a prison sentence or even a fine of up to a quarter of a million dollars.
Federal prosecutors say Neeb under reported business receipts and over reported business expenses during the tax years of 2011, 2012, and 2013. Prosecutors say Neeb shorted the federal government $137,000.
Neeb has agreed to make full restitution.
“With the April 17 tax deadline looming, it is important for people to have confidence that when they pay their taxes, their neighbors and co-workers are doing the same,” Andrew Thornton, Acting Special Agent in Charge of IRS Criminal Investigation, said in a written statement released by the U.S. Attorney’s office. “Fulfilling individual tax obligations is a legal requirement and those who willfully evade that responsibility will be prosecuted.”
Sentencing is scheduled for July 2, 2018.
