By December 29, 2015Tax Evasion

On Oct. 30, 2014, in Detroit, Michigan, Bradley T. McKouen, of Clarkston, was sentenced to 18 months in prison, two years supervised release and ordered to pay $319,000 in restitution. McKouen pleaded guilty to tax evasion in April 2014. According to court documents, during the 2008 tax year, McKouen was the president and sole member of Delta Staffing, LLC, an employee leasing company located in Clarkston, Michigan. Delta was a Schedule C company, meaning its profits were to be reported on Schedule C as a part of McKouen’s personal federal income tax return. In 2008, Delta’s gross receipts were approximately $5.7 million. However, McKouen reported $0 gross receipts on his return. He also reported $0 business income, $0 taxable income, and $0 income tax. In 2008, McKouen’s actual taxable income was approximately $299,000 and his tax due was approximately $110,000. Under the terms of his plea agreement, McKouen is also being held responsible for filing similar zero-income returns for the years 2004-2007. In all, he failed to report $15 million in gross income and evaded $319,000 in federal income taxes for the years 2004-2008.’’
