A Delaware woman pleaded guilty to failing to pay employment taxes on behalf of a local business.
According to court records, Sara Collins, 49, served as the corporate secretary of a plumbing, heating and air conditioning business for over 20 years. Collins was responsible for overseeing payroll disbursement and filing tax documents on behalf of the business.
Beginning in the first quarter of 2013 through the last quarter of 2019, Collins failed to file quarterly forms with the IRS and paid less than $37,000 in payroll taxes for that entire six-year period.
In total, Collins failed to pay more than $930,000 owed to the IRS by the business.
Collins faces up to five years in prison.
