WICHITA, Kansas – A Wichita attorney was convicted today of evading federal taxes.
U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren found Eldon L. Boisseau, 67, Wichita guilty on one count of tax evasion.
In a written decision, the court found that during 1998 through 2000, 2002 through 2005 and 2007 through 2008 Boisseau attempted to evade paying federal income taxes, as well as a trust fund recovery penalty from 1999. He interfered with the government’s efforts to collect the taxes he owned by putting his law firm in the name of a nominee, terminating his own pay agreement with the law firm and then having the firm pay for his personal expenses.
Sentencing is set for Sept. 28. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
