Fishermen’s Sea-Duction Results in Jail Time

Fishermen’s Sea-Duction Results in Jail Time

According to the DoJ, a Connecticut man pleaded guilty today to evading taxes on income he earned as a commercial fisherman.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Brian Kobus, of Durham, Connecticut, worked as a commercial fisherman and deckhand for fishing companies in Massachusetts. 

After each fishing trip, the companies paid him by check. Despite receiving over $1.4 million in fishing income between 2011 through 2013, and 2017 through 2021, Kobus did not file federal income tax returns or pay the taxes that he owed. 

To conceal the source and disposition of his income from the IRS, Kobus regularly cashed his paychecks from the fishing companies and used the cash to fund his lifestyle. In total, he caused a tax loss to the IRS of approximately $377,839.90.

Korbus is scheduled to be sentenced on October 16, 2024 and faces a maximum penalty of five (5) years in prison. He also faces a period of supervised release, restitution and monetary penalties.
