Holmdel Resident Receives Prison Sentence for Filing False Tax Return
Steven Imburgio was sentenced to three months in prison.
A telecommunications executive from Holmdel was sentenced to three months in prison for filing false personal federal income tax returns, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced in a press release on Tuesday.
Steven Imburgio, 50, pleaded guilty in March 2012 before U.S. District Judge Freda L. Wolfson. As part of the plea agreement, Imburgio admitted to one count of making and subscribing to a 2004 federal income tax return to the IRS that he did not believe to be true. Wolfson imposed the three-month sentence in Trenton federal court on Tuesday.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court, officials say Imburgio admitted that he under-reported his gross receipts from his business activities on his 2004, 2005, and 2006 personal income tax returns, resulting in a tax loss to the United States of between $80,000 and $200,000.
In addition to the prison term, Wolfson sentenced Imburgio to one year of supervised release, which includes seven months of home confinement, according to the statement issued by the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Fishman credited special agents of IRS–Criminal Investigation, under thedirection of Acting Special Agent in Charge Shantelle P. Kitchen, with the investigation leading to the sentence.
