Seal Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 16, 2016
Attorney Hector C. Perez, founder of Hector C. Perez & Associates, recently reached a plea bargain for a client in an alleged tax evasion case (Case No. RIF1312293, filed in the Superior Court of California County of Riverside). According to court documents, Perez’s client and his brother, who was represented by another attorney, were charged with tax evasion and were each facing thirteen years in prison and a substantial amount of money in penalties.
Court documents allege that government criminal tax investigators had concluded, based on their investigation, that the defendant and his brother had filed fraudulent sales tax returns with the Board of Equalization for the purpose of evading tax. This, according to court documents, was in violation of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
Court documents further state that the plea bargain reached was that the defendants would pay $1 million of the amount that was actually owed (approximately $1.3 million in sales taxes) in one year while their sentencing was postponed. At the time of the sentence, if the amount was fully paid, according to court documents, their sentence would be probation and their plea would be reduced to a misdemeanor.
