De Pere business owner sentenced to federal prison for tax evasion

by

DE PERE, WI (WTAQ) - A business owner from De Pere has been sentenced to a year-and-a-day in a federal prison, for not paying income taxes to the IRS that she withheld from her employees.

Prosecutors said Lisa Bartz Vanden Elzen failed to give the IRS $193,000 in payroll taxes she withheld – and she failed to pay the employer’s share of those taxes, totaling $81,000.

Officials said the violations occurred between 2005 and 2010.

She and her husband own Dairy Transport Services of De Pere. The 47-year-old Vanden Elzen was ordered to pay $274,000 in restitution to the federal government.
