Federal prosecutors and the IRS Criminal Investigations unit closed out tax filing season Tuesday by bringing a series of charges against local residents, according to court records filed early today.
Washington County men Daniel Levine and Angelo Comfort Jr., whose ages and residences weren't immediately available, face related charges of filing false tax returns.
Both men "earned substantial income from the sale of metal taken from Greenetech Manufacturing Co. and sold for scrap in exchange for cash," according to the charging documents filed, and failed to report it for several years.
Greenetech is a Washington, Pa., fabrication and machine shop.
Separately, Latrobe resident Debra J. Feather was indicted for income tax evasion, according to a press release by U.S. Attorney David Hickton's office. She is accused of failing to declare "substantial income" from 2007 through 2010.
Last week an IRS Criminal Investigations probe led to charges against Robinson-based dentist Charles W. Schwimer, 55, who is accused of failing to report cash he received in 2009 for dental work performed, and characterizing $29,000 in personal spending as business expenses.
