Rockwall man sentenced to 30 months in prison for tax evasion

DALLAS – A Rockwall man was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison Sept. 20 by U.S. District Judge Jane J. Boyle after pleading guilty to tax evasion.

According to U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña (pictured) of the Northern District of Texas, Jack Britton Kyle willfully attempted to evade paying $34,453 in federal income tax he owed in 2005 after earning approximate $160,280 in taxable income.

In addition, Judge Boyle ordered that Kyle pay $380,723 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for taxes due and owing beginning in tax year 1999. Kyle must surrender to the Bureau of Prisons by Nov. 14.

He admitted that he willfully attempted to evade the income due and owed by: 1) failing to make an income tax return on or before April 17, 2006, as required by law; 2) failing to pay the IRS the income tax due; and 3) concealing and attempting to conceal his true income from the proper authorities.

A three-count indictment against Kyle was returned in April, 2011.

The case was investigated by IRS Criminal Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael C. Elliott.
