Lexington Man Sentenced for Falsified Tax Return

dept.-of-justice(AP) — A Lexington man has been sentenced to federal prison for helping to falsify a tax return.

Donald Ondrak was given a year and a day behind bars. He must serve a year of supervised release after he leaves custody, and he was fined $5,000.

The 61-year-old Ondrak has already surrendered his license as a certified public accountant.

Prosecutors say that in 2007, Ondrak filed a tax return for a medical equipment business. The return included a fraudulent $800,000 management fee expense that lowered the tax liability by nearly $255,000.
