New York Dentist Indicted for Alleged Tax Fraud
April 1, 2015
April 1, 2015 — A Williamsville, New York dentist, Charles Weber, has recently been indicted by a federal grand jury for filing false tax returns for the tax years 2006 and 2007.
The Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 set up an IRS Whistleblower Office so whistleblowers with information about tax fraud
could notify the IRS and receive compensation. The Act allows tipsters to receive a percentage of 15 to 30 percent of the funds recouped by the IRS based on an informant’s unique information. To be eligible for compensation concerning a private individual’s IRS violations, the tax evader’s gross income must exceed $200,000 for every taxable year involved and the government’s recovery must top $2 million. To receive a reward for information about a corporation’s wrongdoing, no minimum recovery is required.
New York Dentist Allegedly Failed to Disclose Reportable Income to IRS in 2006 and 2007
The IRS alleges that in April 2009, Weber falsely claimed that he was not a U.S. citizen and was outside the country during the tax years 2006 and 2007. In addition, Weber reportedly failed to disclose that he received reportable income from his dental practice in both those years. Instead, Weber allegedly claimed falsely that all of his taxable income in 2006 and 2007 was derived from dividends. Weber signed his 2006 and 2007 tax returns under penalties of perjury.
