Posted in on August 24, 2012
Arvind Ahuja, a prominent neurosurgeon in Milwaukee, was recently convicted by a federal court on one count of filing a false 2009 individual income tax return and one count of failing to file a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR). Mr. Ahuja maintained his undisclosed offshore accounts through HSBC in both India and the Bailiwick of Jersey.
The criminal penalty for filling a false tax return can carry a sentence of up to three years imprisonment in addition to a maximum sentence of ten years for failure to file an FBAR. These criminal penalties are not inclusive of any civil penalties that may also be assessed against the taxpayer.
