Tax Resolution Services Offers Only Good Tax Help: Ohio Businessman Hit with Tax Charges after Bad Advice
An Ohio businessman has been charged with attempting to evade his 2004 income taxes after he followed the erroneous advice of a person claiming to be a tax professional.
According to court records, Stephan Karchut, of Cortland, Ohio, the sole operator of a business known as PC Surveillance, failed to file income tax returns for the years 2002 to 2004, on false advice that under Section 861 of the IRS code income is not reportable unless it is received from foreign source. Karchut also structured the ownership of PC Surveillance as a supposed limited liability company in a manner designed to conceal Karchut’s control of the business.
As of at least mid-2005, Karchut questioned the validity of the 861 argument and realized that the nominal ownership arrangement of PC Surveillance was a device to conceal his true ownership and control over the business. He nevertheless continued to present that argument and to conceal his ownership and control over the business in his communications with the IRS.
In particular, for 2004, Karchut attempted to evade income taxes of at least $34,075, owing on unreported income of at least $161,849, by failing to file a personal income tax return, among other tactics.
