Not Such A Minor Offense

Posted on October 15, 2021

New Yorker Mark Wolanyk pleaded guilty to tax evasion for a scheme that included his minor son.

Wolanyk opened a bank account in his son’s name in 2010, and listed himself as the custodian of the account. During the next three years Wolanyk deposited more than $250,000.00 in the account, the majority of the funds coming from his business. During roughly the same time period, Wolanyk withdrew a similar amount from the account.

In 2011, while the IRS was attempting to collect taxes owed by Wolanyk, he submitted a Collection Information Statement for Wage Earner and Self-Employed individuals and did not list the account held in his son’s name.

Wolanyk filed a false tax return in 2014 claiming a loss in income. Later that year he amended his return and claimed $77,477.00 in gross income and $56,491 in total income. Neither return reported $60,000.00 he had deposited in his son’s account from a real estate transaction that same year.

Wolanyk was sentenced to 12 months of home confinement, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $243,387.00 in restitution to the IRS.
