Nacogdoches couple pleads guilty to tax violations

Posted: Updated:

From the US Attorney's Office

NACOGDOCHES, TX - A Nacogdoches, Texas couple has pleaded guilty to federal tax violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.   

Reggie Cotton, 53, and Deborah Cotton, 57, pleaded guilty to an information charging them with failing to file tax returns for the calendar year 2004 today before U.S. District Judge Ron Clark. 

According to information presented in court, the Cottons were involved in running and operating D&R Services, a janitorial cleaning service.  The Cottons had received gross income for 2004 totaling $207,857 for D&R Services which they failed to file a federal income tax return for.  The Cottons knew they were required to file an income tax return because they had filed an income tax return for a separate janitorial company they had been involved with in the past.  

The defendants face up to one year in federal prison and restitution.  A sentencing date has not been set.

This case is being investigated by the IRS and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Reynaldo P. Morin.
