Sacramento – A Yountville man pleaded no contest to one felony count of failing to file his state income tax return, the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) announced.
John T. Greerty, 72, is currently serving a prison term on felony charges related to a fraudulent real estate deal. According to court documents, Greerty failed to file his 2007 state income tax return to report the $775,000 from the sale of a piece of property he did not own. All income is taxable including income from illegal sources. He owes the state more than $66,000 in unpaid tax. Interest, penalties, and the cost of the investigation will be added to this figure and sought as restitution.
Anita E. Greerty, 71, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count related to the failure to file the 2007 state income tax return.
Their sentencing and restitution hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m., August 15 in Department E of the Napa County Superior Court.
FTB’s criminal investigation program identifies and investigates cases of tax evasion and tax fraud to encourage compliance with California income tax laws and maintain the public trust.
