Galesburg Illinois man arrested on sales tax fraud

Case 13 CF 91 is now closed, with no jail time for our client. Our client was arrested for committing sales tax fraud by underreporting sales from his gas station in Galesburg County. After filing numerous motions in limine to ban the damaging testimony of witnesses (in this case accountants), and negotiating with the Illinois Department of Revenue, we were able to have the State agree to a plea of guilty in exchange for probation.
This case was different in the way that the star witness for the State was incarcerated while my client’s case was pending in the Court. The witness was an accountant, that later became the Controller of the Parks District in Galesburg, Illinois. During his tenure at the Parks District, he embezzled over $200,000.00.  As a result, impeaching this witness would have been a dream come true for any Illinois sales tax defense attorney in Illinois.
If you are being investigated by the Illinois Department of Revenue for Sales Tax Fraud, call our firm at 312-265-5626.
