The owner of a flooring store in Stilwell, Kansas, was sentenced today to a year on federal probation for tax evasion, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said. He paid $101,014 in restitution.
Randall Barker, 50, owner of Wholesale Flooring, Inc., in Stilwell, Kansas, pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion.
A plea agreement was reached between Barker and the prosecution.
In his plea, Barker admitted he failed to report the full amount of income from his business in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. He admitted he took direct payments from customers, removed cash from business deposits and altered invoices to show less income for the business.
McAllister commended the Internal Revenue Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Smith for their work on the case.
