The owner of a roofing and remodeling company in Connecticut pleaded guilty to a federal tax offense.

Pavel Teply, 45, of Stamford, Connecticut, used a tax return preparer for the preparation of his personal income tax returns. Teply provided his preparer with a schedule that underreported the gross receipts of his business, certain business expenses, and his income.

As a result, Teply’s tax returns for the 2013 through 2015 tax years, which Teply authorized his preparer to file with the IRS, underreported Teply’s income, resulting in a tax loss of $175,812.

Teply faces up to three years in federal prison.
