Indiana Construction Company Owner Sentenced to Tax Evasion

On July 1, 2010, in Indianapolis, Ind., David W. Pittman, of Greenwood, was sentenced to 12 months in prison, 18 months' home detention and two years of supervised release following his plea of guilty to income tax evasion. He must also cooperate with the IRS in determining his income tax liabilities. Pittman, the owner/operator of Pittman Framing, a residential construction framing company, failed to file income tax returns for the years 1994 through 1998. The IRS assessed the income tax owed by Pittman for each of these years, but he took steps to evade the payment of these assessed taxes. The total income tax deficiency owed by Pittman is approximately $497,000. Pittman also failed to file income tax returns for the years 2003 through 2005 and 2007. The total income owed by Pittman for those years is approximately $48,000.
