Bethel landscaper sentenced for tax evasion

A Bethel landscaper has been sentenced to prison for tax evasion.  55-Timothy Draper was ordered to 8 months in prison and to pay a $75,000 fine.  Draper owns and operates T&M Lawn & Landscape, and multiple residential rental properties in Bethel and Danbury.  According to court documents, Draper failed to deposit numerous checks from those businesses into his business operating accounts, resulting in underreporting of 1-point-8 million dollars for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 tax years.  Draper also reportedly paid personal expenses out of the business accounts and failed to categorize the payments as income to him.  The underreporting of income resulted in the underpayment of more than $500,000 in income taxes for the three tax years.  Draper has paid the back taxes, interest and penalties and is required to report to prison on January 10th.
