An insurance salesman and former resident of Parma, Ohio was sentenced to 37 months in prison following his conviction in December 2016 for failing to file income tax returns and failing to pay taxes, announced the Justice Department’s Tax Division. According to documents and information provided to the court, John Christopher Raschella, 57, of Estero, Florida, failed to pay more than $1 million in income taxes, interest and penalties that he owed to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for 1995, 1996, and 1998 through 2012. During those years, Raschella sold insurance, and earned additional income working for other insurance salesmen. Between 1989 and 2012, Raschella failed to timely file income tax returns with the IRS. For several years, Raschella filed delinquent returns, reporting that he owed taxes, but failed to make the required payments. For other years, the IRS assessed Raschella’s taxes and sent him letters notifying him of the amount he owed, but Raschella still did not pay. DOJ
