A Wichita man has been sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to repay $827,216 in restitution for tax evasion.
39 year-old Dallen Harris pleaded to one count of tax evasion. In his plea agreement, Harris admitted to reporting just $164,157 in income for 2010, when is actual income was over $1 million.
Records in a civil forfeiture case showed Harris received income from a large variety of internet websites, including many adult sites. According to Harris's LinkedIn profile, his company Harris Web Investments "...buys struggling websites and/or technology and turns them into profitable monthly revenue streams."
In the civil case against Harris, the government is seeking forfeiture of houses, cars, and bank accounts owned by Harris. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom commended the IRS Criminal Investigation division and Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Metzger for their work on the case.
