Gladwyne Accountant Gets Fine, Probation for Unpaid Taxes

The resident was convicted of a single misdemeanor over about $22,000 owed.

A Gladwyne accountant has been sentenced to five years probation and a $3,000 fine for failing to pay more than $22,000 in taxes his firm owed, an IRS spokeswoman announced Friday.

The resident—unidentified by Patch because the offense was a misdemeanor—was sentenced Sept. 10 in federal court in Philadelphia. He had pleaded guilty to one count of failure to truthfully account for and pay over withholding and FICA taxes.

In 2006, according to the IRS, "the company had paid approximately $84,895.25 in compensation to the firm’s employees and ... a tax of approximately $22,434.73 was due the IRS." The $22,434.73 withheld was not paid to the IRS, though, according to the agency's statement.

If possible a more severe penalty should have been imposed unless repayment is made with penalty and interest.
