TOWING COMPANY OWNER GETS 15 MONTHS He admitted that he owed more than $130,000 in taxes.


The owner of a South Florida towing company was sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of tax evasion.

 According to court records, Craig Goldstein, 60, of Boca Raton, Florida, was an owner of West Way Towing, a company that towed and stored disabled vehicles, including ones involved in accidents.

 Goldstein referred accident victims to attorneys and chiropractors who would then illegally charge insurance companies for unneeded services under Florida’s Personal Injury Protection program. Goldstein charged a fee for each referral, which he collected in cash and failed to report to the IRS.

 Goldstein also failed to report cash he received from vehicle storage lien fees and vehicle auctions, the sales prices of which were manipulated to reflect falsely that he made no profit. Goldstein admitted owing the U.S. government more than $130,000 in income tax.
