Tax Fraud Earns Pennsylvania Resident Conviction in Federal Court

Jonathan Felix, a resident of Narberth, Pennsylvania, has been convicted in federal court of filing false income tax returns between 1999 and 2002, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Mr. Felix owned and operated United Professional Plans, Inc., which processed dental claims and resolved disputes that labor union members had with dental service providers.

Mr. Felix engaged in wrongdoing that caused his own company to fail. He took money from his company for his personal expenses. Then he filed federal income tax returns between 1999 and 2002 that significantly underreported Mr. Felix’s income and did not disclose the money that Mr. Felix took from United Professional Plans.

Mr. Felix’s tax fraud cost the Internal Revenue Service, and thus cost taxpayers, a total of about $390,000.

Mr. Felix will not be sentenced until August 23.
