Snyder dentist convicted of tax fraud

A federal jury convicted a Snyder dentist of two counts of making and subscribing a false tax return, U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. announced Wednesday.

Prosecutors said Charles Weber, 62, who operates a private dental practice in Williamsville, falsely claimed he was not a U.S. citizen and had not been present in the United States at any time during 2006 or 2007. They also said Weber falsely stated that his only taxable income in 2006 and 2007 came from dividends.

They said he knew his gross receipts from his dental business had been in excess of $297,000, and that, in 2007, in addition to his income from dividends, they had been been in excess of $283,000, according to Assistant U.S. Attorneys MaryEllen Kresse and Stephanie Lamarque.

Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 6 before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.
