He lied on his tax returns, resulting in a tax loss to the IRS of $278,325.

A male escort who lied to the IRS about his income was sentenced to 21 months in prison and ordered to pay $278,325 in restitution.

According to court records, Jami Kopacz, 46, of Miami, Florida, worked as a paid escort directly with individual clients and with a private escort company as an independent contractor. Kopacz worked under a “Subchapter S” corporation, JK Trading LLC.

From 2015 to 2018, Kopacz filed false corporate tax returns with the IRS that substantially underreported JK Trading’s gross receipts and total income.

This understatement on JK Training’s corporate tax returns passed through to Kopacz’s individual tax returns, which were also false because they underreported his total income.  Kopacz’s filings caused a total tax loss to the IRS of $278,325.
