Posted: Updated:

From U.S. Department of Justice:   

LUBBOCK, Texas — Robert Salinas was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to six months in federal prison and ordered to pay $11, 475 in restitution, following his guilty plea in April 2012 to an Information charging one count of making a false statement on an income tax return, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.  Judge Cummings ordered that Salinas, who has been on bond, surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on August 17, 2012.

According to the factual resume filed in the case, Salinas, who owned All Quote Insurance in Lubbock, understated and under-reported his taxable income for tax year 2008, which resulted in a $11,475 tax loss to the Internal Revenue Service.  He admitted filing a Schedule C Form, Profit or Loss from Business, containing false wage expenses, which Salinas knew was intended to decrease his tax liability.  The investigation also revealed, according the factual resume, that Salinas created false W-2 Forms.

The case was investigated by the IRS Criminal Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paulina M. Jacobo.
