Former business owner still fighting IRS after conviction appealed

Local News

A former small business owner is still fighting the IRS four years after he was convicted of tax charges.

Carlo Marinello was back in a courtroom in Buffalo. The IRS claims Marinello failed to file personal and corporate tax returns between 2005 and 2008.

He was convicted, but he appealed. His case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In March, the high court ruled the tax law Marinello was accused of breaking was too broad.

Marinello’s attorney, Joe Latona, says “His position always was that that statute did not apply to his case, and ultimately, the United States Supreme Court agreed.”

Marinello admitted to destroying some bank statements and mixing business income with personal expenses.

His case will go back to court on July 18.
