Businesswoman sentenced for filing false tax return
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- A Binghamton businesswoman was sentenced for filing a false tax return on more than $250,000 of taxable income.
The Northern New York District Attorney says Jacqueline MacBlane was sentenced to two years of probation, ordered 100 hours of community service, and fined more than $108,000, which includes what she owes the IRS.
In August of last year, MacBlane pleaded guilty to falsely claiming income in 2006 and 2007. Between those two years, MacBlane failed to report nearly $270,000 worth of income earned from her business at the Brackney Inn in Pennsylvania and Charley's Tavern, which her husband managed.
MacBlane would have owed more than $78,000 if that income had been properly claimed.
