A 63-year-old Nebraska man was sentenced to five months in prison following his conviction on a tax evasion charge.
Kenneth Seeley, of Oâ€™Neill, Neb., was also sentenced to an additional five months of home confinement and will be required to serve three years of supervised release following his release from prison. Seeley must also pay $47,493 in restitution to the IRS.
Seeley did not file federal income tax returns for 2002, 2003 and 2004. During 2002, and into the 2003 tax years, Seeley instructed various business ventures he was involved with to make his wage/commission income payable to third parties, rather than directly payable to himself. Later, during the 2003, 2004 and 2005 tax years, Seeley instructed the business ventures to make his wage/commission income payable to KEAS Inc. rather than directly payable to Seeley.Â
As a result, Seeleyâ€™s wage/commission income from 2002 to 2005 was payable in a name other than his own. By failing to file a personal federal income tax return for the 2002, 2003 and 2004 tax years, he was able to hide income.
By assigning his income to a corporation, Seeley avoided about $50,000 in taxes.
