EDH man accused of tax evasion

An El Dorado Hills man was indicted by federal grand jurors last week on suspicion of income tax evasion.

Donald M. Wanland Jr., 53, of El Dorado Hills, is charged with attempting to evade personal income taxes from 2000 through 2003, according to US attorney Benjamin B. Wagner.

Wanland is also accused of not filing tax returns from 2005 to 2007 as well as concealing assets from the IRS in order to avoid a levy.

Between 2005 and 2007, Wanland earned more than $1 million, the indictment claims.

According to court documents, Wanland was first indicted on Jan. 8, 2009, for attempting to evade paying income taxes for the years 2000 through 2003.

He allegedly concealed the nature and extent of his assets and their location, made false statements to at least one IRS agent regarding his income and ability to pay his tax liability and placed funds and property in the names of at least one nominee.

Last week’s grand jury indictment, though, adds the new charges of tax evasion from the years 2000 to 2003 as well as allegations that he willfully failed to file tax returns from 2005 to 2007.

If convicted of all counts, Wanland could face up to nine years in prison and more than $500,000 in fines.
