Leesburg Consultant Charged With Filing False Tax Returns
Mizanur Rahman was indicted on Thursday after filing false income tax returns.
Leesburg telecommunications consultant Mizanur Rahman was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday for allegedly filing false tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2005 and 2006, the Washington Field Offices of the IRS Criminal Investigation and the FBI announced Thursday.
According to the indictment, Rahman worked as a consultant for an “International Corporation” that contracted for and managed projects in Bangladesh.
Between November 2004 and September 2006, the International Corporation paid Rahman approximately $1.7 million, according to FBI documents, which Rahman allegedly deposited into a bank account in Hong Kong under the name of Jupiter International, a company that Rahman owned.
The indictment further alleges that for tax years 2005 and 2006, Rahman willfully filed false individual income tax returns with the IRS that substantially under-reported his total income.
Rahman faces a maximum potential sentence of six years in prison, if convicted.
