Not even two days after the tax filing deadline a Springfield man is under arrest for not filing his individual income tax returns.
Fredrick I. Harrold is being held on four counts of failure to file his taxes for 2009 through 2012.
Harrold is being held at the Sangamon County Jail with a bond of $50,000.
The Director of the Illinois Department of Revenue says the arrest sends a message that the state will prosecute people who don’t take their responsibility to file tax returns seriously.
If Harrold is convicted on all counts he could be sentenced to up to 12 years in prison. Harrold’s first hearing is May 21st.
