A Wisconsin lawyer was sentenced to six months in prison and
ordered to pay the IRS $380,000 in taxes after he was convicted of failing to pay income taxes owed for the years 2007 to 2009.

George W. Curtis, 77, of Pickett, Wisc., was also sentenced to supervised release for one year and ordered to pay the costs of prosecution of $3,878.28.

Curtis, a lawyer practicing in Oshkosh, Wisc., was convicted after a jury trial of three counts of willfully failing to pay the taxes he owed for those years. While Curtis filed tax returns for these years reporting his income and taxes, he paid none of the taxes. In addition, Curtis has yet to pay taxes he owed for the years 2003 and 2004.

At trial, the government introduced evidence that during the years 2007 to 2009, Curtis’ law practice generated a profit of approximately $1.1 million and that he used those funds to make personal expenditures totaling more than $1 million.

Nonetheless, Curtis paid none of the federal income taxes he owed
