Dentist found guilty of filing false tax returns

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A jury has convicted a Snyder man of two counts of filing a false tax return. 

Charles Weber, 62, of Snyder, faces a maximum of three years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both when he is sentenced Dec. 6. 

According to the assistant U.S. attorneys handling the case, Weber operated a private dental practice in Wiliamsville. In April 2009, he filed tax returns for the 2006 and 2007 tax years, in which he falsely stated that he was not a U.S. citizen and hadn't been present in the U.S. for any time in 2006 or 2007. 

He also falsely stated that his only taxable income in 2006 and 2007 came from dividends. 

In reality, Weber was born in the U.S., lived in Snyder, and lived and worked in the U.S. in 2006 and 2007. 

In 2006, Weber's gross receipts from his business were more than $297,000. In 2007, they were $283,000.
