WICHITA, KAN. - A Wichita business owner was sentenced Monday to two years on supervised release and ordered to pay $256,000 in restitution for withholding taxes from employee salaries that he failed to pay over to the government, U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.
Michael J. Skladzien, 54, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of failing to pay over taxes. In his plea, he admitted that while he owned S&S Floor Maintenance he withheld approximately money from salaries of employees to pay federal taxes. Instead of paying the funds over to the government, he spent the money on personal expenses including gambling.
Beall commended the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Metzger for their work on the case.
