Three Men Pleaded Guilty To Withholding Income To Pay Less in Federal Taxes

KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Three Kenosha men have pleaded guilty to under-reporting their business income in order to pay less federal tax.

That’s according to a Friday press release from the United States Attorney’s Office Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Court filings show that 63 year old Richard Pignotti, 62 year old Richard Milkie, and 56 year old Jeffery Milkie pleaded guilty last month to withholding income to their jointly run roofing business in order to avoid taxes from 2015 through 2017, totaling more than $321,000  in underpaid federal taxes.

The defendants could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to 250-thousand dollars each when they are sentenced later this year.
