Lafayette man accused of not reporting $468K for state taxes
BATON ROUGE- The Louisiana Department of Revenue says a Lafayette man is accused of failing to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in income from his home improvement business.
Department spokeswoman Kizzy Payton says in a news release that Alan Bernard filed state tax returns reporting no income from the business in 2012 and 2013.
She says other records show that A-Team Home Improvements LLC brought in $144,000 in 2012 and $324,000 in 2013.
An online directory did not have any current numbers for Bernard. Payton said in an email Wednesday that she doesn't know who represents him. She said his bond was set at $15,000.
Payton says Bernard was booked Tuesday in Baton Rouge on charges of tax evasion, failing to account for state tax monies and filing false public records.
