Two charged with tax fraud
A New London couple has been charged with income tax fraud.
One of them owns New London Tax Service.
Jane A. Wons, 65, and Robert D. Wons, 73, were each charged with four felony counts of income tax fraud.
They face a maximum penalty of six years in prison and $10,000 in fines, if convicted.
On Dec. 29, 2011, an agent with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue spoke with Robert Wons regarding unfiled tax returns.
Records indicated the Wons had not filed their income tax returns since 2006.
According to the criminal complaint, Wons told the agent his wife took care of the returns and would refile them.
On Jan. 19, 2012, the returns were delivered to the Department of Revenue office in Appleton.
They indicated state-taxable income averaging under $5,800 per year from 2007 to 2010 and that they owed no taxes.
A DOR audit, however, found evidence the Wons’ annual taxable income ranged from $50,000 to $70,000 during that period.
The Wons owe more than $59,000 in taxes, interest and penalties, according to the DOR’s Delinquent Taxpayer website.
