17292Re: Peter Hendrickson convicted.
- Nov 10, 2009See 26 USC 3102 & 3402.
And REALIZE that Pete was NOT convicted of INCOME TAX evasion & the charges
MAY actually have had LITTLE to do with INCOME TAX.
"Peter Hendrickson, 54, of Commerce Township was found guilty today of
making false statements to the IRS by a federal jury in Detroit, United
States Attorney Terrence Berg announced today.
The jury deliberated for about four hours before returning the verdict,
concluding a five-day trial before Chief United States District Judge Gerald
The 10-count indictment charged that for the calendar years 2000, 2002,2003,
2004, 2005 and 2006 Hendrickson filed IRS Form 1040 (income tax returns)
and/or IRS Form 4852 (Substitute for Form W-2) stating under penalties of
perjury that he had received no wages in those years. The indictment
indicated that he had in fact received wages in those years in varying
amounts. The evidence produced at trial established that Hendrickson had in
fact received taxable wages and that his claims to the contrary were
knowingly false. In reaching the verdicts, the jury rejected Hendrickson's
defense that he had a good faith belief that his statements regarding his
lack of wages were true."
Especially IF the "wages" REFERRED to are those for purposes of Social
Security & Medicare (FICA).
Remember, one can be EXEMPT for INCOME TAX purposes, but STILL be LIABLE for
Exemption from federal income tax withholding. Generally, an employee may
claim exemption from federal income tax withholding because he or she had no
income tax liability last year and expects none this year. See the Form W-4
instructions for more information. However, the wages are still subject to
social security and Medicare taxes. See also Invalid Forms W-4 on page 17.
