Town justice pleads guilty to tax evasion

On December 6, 2019, the United States Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York issued a press release announcing that a Lewisboro, New York town justice pled guilty to tax evasion in federal court.1 The new release reminds taxpayers all over the country that the authorities are diligently pursuing tax evaders in an effort to protect honest taxpayers.  Specifically, the release quotes IRS_CI Special Agent in Charge Jonathan D. Larsen as stating:

As a Lewisboro Town Justice, Mr. Seedorf knows the consequences when laws are broken.  To maintain faith in our nation's tax system, honest taxpayers need to be reassured that everyone is paying their fair share.  IRS-CI, together with the Department of Justice, will investigate and prosecute those who break this country's tax laws.

According to the press release, the allegations in the Information included that the town justice: (1) failed to file tax returns for tax years 2005 through 2015--even though he was required to do so; (2) incurred hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal income tax liabilities, including penalties and interest; and (3) concealed proceeds from a law suit settlement.

The town justice pled guilty to one count of tax evasion, which has a maximum sentence of five years in prison--the actual sentencing will be determined by the judge.
