Businessman sentenced to prison for not filing income taxes

Gulfport Ms.(WLOX) - U.S. Attorney Dunn Lampton, and Michael J. DePalma, Special Agent in Charge of the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation, New Orleans Field Office, announced that RICHARD K. BUCKMAN, age 40, of Gulfport , was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden to serve 8 months in federal prison for willfully failing to file federal income tax returns for 2002 and 2003.

Buckman was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $187,714.81 and to perform 80 hours of community service. Buckman was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 12, 2007 on charges of willfully failing to file federal income tax returns for 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003.

 According to the indictment, Buckman received gross income of almost one million dollars during the four tax years covered by the indictment, and failed to file in any of those years even though he was required by law to do so. On February 27, 2008, Buckman pled guilty to two counts of willfully failing to file federal income tax returns.
