A Waltham drywall company owner will be watched closely by authorities and be made to pay fines and restitution after he failed to shell out a total of $200,000 in taxes to the IRS from 2004 to 2006, according to US Attorney Carmen Ortiz’s office.
Paul Landry, 47 of Waltham and owner of P.L. Drywall, Inc., did not report $900,000 he made from 2004 to 2006 to the IRS, according to a statement from the US Attorney’s office. He also lied to an IRS investigator who interviewed Landry about the matter, the statement said.
Landry pleaded guilty to three counts of tax evasion in February 2102. He was sentenced last week to three months in a halfway house, six months under house arrest, and three years of probation. He will also pay $200,000 in back taxes, as well as a $3,000 fine.
US District Court Judge Mark L. Wolf said he was not requiring Landry to serve jail time because of Landry’s declining health, as well as his record of good works in his community, the statement said.
