Hawaii dealer pleads guilty to federal tax evasion
A Honolulu dealer faces up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine after pleading guilty to federal tax evasion.
Alan Pflueger is the sole owner of Pflueger Inc. His plea agreement admitted that the corporation paid his personal expenses, including credit card bills, truck racing expenses and landscaping, and that he let it pay personal expenses for his father, a retired dealer, who is awaiting trial on tax and conspiracy to defraud charges.
The indictment lists multiple payments drawn on Honda and Acura store accounts.
Alan Pflueger admitted filing a false return for 2005. The government dropped charges pertaining to two other tax years, and Pflueger must pay back taxes, interest and penalties.
Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 31.
