The U.S. Attorney for the State of Connecticut announced Wednesday, New Canaanite Sherwood Schaub, 70, pleaded guilty to charges of evading taxes for a decade.
One of the things Schaub, also known as Andy Sherwood, allegedly did was not pay the IRS taxes he was withholding from employee paychecks. The IRS did catch on and fined him, but claims Schaub ignored the fines.
It’s a strategy reminescent of Hamlet’s philosophy, “Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” or of that old advice your mom used to give you, “If you ignore them, they’ll go away.”
Either way, it doesn’t work with the IRS.
Ye be warned! It’s tax season.
Here’s a full story on Schaub’s predicament from our sister publication in New Canaan.
