Doctor Sentenced for Multiple Tax Crimes

On Feb. 12, 2014, in Boston, Massachusetts, Richard C. McGinn was sentenced to 30 months in prison and two years of supervised release. In 2013, a jury convicted McGinn, a doctor, of tax evasion, five counts of failing to pay over employment taxes and failure to file a tax return. According to court documents, from 2007 until 2009, McGinn owned and operated a medical practice in Greenfield, Massachusetts. During that time, he evaded the payment of a tax liability of over $1 million which he had accumulated from 1987 to 2003.  Among other things, McGinn paid personal expenses with corporate funds, and he used the bank account of a family member to conceal the income from the medical practice. During this time, McGinn also withheld employment taxes from the paychecks of his employees, and he kept the money for himself, rather than paying the money to the IRS as he was required to do.  Additionally, McGinn failed to file corporate income tax returns for his medical practice. (Source:
