A Pennsylvania anesthesiologist was sentenced to prison for filing numerous fraudulent income tax returns from 2010-18, the Department of Justice announced Jan. 16.

James Allen Jr., DO, received a 30-month sentence for failing to report over $3 million in income that he and his wife earned as anesthesiologists.

He also hid their assets and income from the federal government by depositing money in an offshore account, wiring money to Colombia to buy a house, purchasing cryptocurrency and gold, and registering a vehicle under a false name, authorities said.

Dr. Allen was ordered to pay the IRS more than $1.08 million in restitution for causing a tax loss totaling over $900,000.
