Husband and wife attorneys, Edward “Ted” Millstein and Susan Halpern from Rittenhouse, PA, were indicted on charges of willfully attempting to evade taxes.
Prosecutors state that Millstein concealed their assets, lied to IRS agents about their income, and put money and property in the names of others to avoid paying taxes.
It’s not the first time the couple has been in trouble for failing to pay taxes. Both Millstein and Halper were charged for failing to pay taxes in 2010 in the amount of $143,473.35 and in 2011 in the amount of $153,560.69.
The IRS filed liens against the couple; in 2013, a lien was filed by the feds in the amount of $151,459 and the State of PA filed a state tax lien in the amount of $28,715.
If convicted on all charges, Millstein could face a prison sentence of up to seven years, three years’ probation and $450,000 in fines. The max sentence for Halpern would be two years in jail, one year probation and $200,000 in fines.
