A doctor in London evaded paying taxes on hundreds of thousands in income from 2005 to 2010, a federal grand jury has charged.
Werner Grentz allegedly earned between $169,000 and $365,000 each of those years, but he did not file tax returns, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Kerry B. Harvey.
Agents from the Internal Revenue Service arrested Grentz, 63, Tuesday afternoon, Harvey announced Wednesday.
Grentz worked at hospitals and medical offices in London, Manchester, Monticello and Jellico, Tenn., during the time covered by the charges, according to the news release.
Grentz allegedly gave one of his employers an IRS form that falsely claimed he was exempt from having federal income taxes withheld from his check, and had his pay deposited into bank accounts of companies to hide his income, Harvey said in the news release.
Grentz could face up to five years in prison if convicted.
