Dentists

A Snyder, N.Y.-based dentist was handed a 30-month prison sentence after filing a false tax return, according to The Buffalo News.

Prosecutors allege in April 2009 Charles Weber, DDS, filed tax returns for 2006 and 2007 that fraudulently stated he was not a U.S. citizen. Dr. Weber claimed he was not in the country in 2006 and 2007 to file his taxes.

For 2006 and 2007, Dr. Weber said his only taxable income came from dividends, according the U.S. Attorney's Office.

A U.S.-born citizen, Dr. Weber had gross receipts from his dental practice that exceed $297,000 in 2006 and $238,000 in 2007.

Dr. Weber was also ordered to pay $190,547 as a restitution payment.
