John A. Gullett, of Parkland, Fla., was sentenced to 51 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, after being convicted on four counts of filing a false tax return. Gullett was also ordered to pay restitution of $255,000 to the IRS.
According to court records, Gullett submitted false Form 1040 Individual Income Tax Returns, statements and documents for tax years 2002 to 2005. He under reported his gross receipts from 2002 to 2005 and filed the tax returns with the IRS knowing that the returns contained materially false information.
Gullet contracted with the Broward County Police Benevolent Association (BCPBA) and the Dade County Police Benevolent Association (DCPBA) to solicit local businesses to buy advertisements in a book that Gullett published listing local businesses. The book was distributed to PBA members.
In exchange, Gullett paid BCPBA and DCPBA between $3,000 and $5,000 per month and kept any funds he raised in excess of these amounts. Gullett failed to report about $3 million of income from 2002 to 2005. Gullett used these monies to purchase a personal residence in Parkland, Fla., and various luxury automobiles, including two Ferraris and a Lamborghini.
