KONA MAN FACES U.S. TAX CHARGES
A Kona man has been charged with six counts of tax evasion for allegedly conspiring to avoid paying more than $800,000 in income tax over five years, the U.S. Attorney's office said.
On Feb. 9, a federal grand jury returned a six-count indictment charging Hamlet C. Bennett with tax evasion from 1999 through 2003.
Bennett, an architect who runs his own firm, earned more than $2.3 million during that period but avoided paying $891,000 in income tax by creating several shell entities to hide his income, according to the indictment.
