Missouri daycare operator sentenced for failing to pay taxes
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The former owner of two Missouri daycare businesses has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for failing to pay about $890,000 in taxes.
The office of the U.S. attorney for the western District of Missouri says 47-year-old Lynn Jordan of Parkville was sentenced Friday to two years in prison without parole for failing to pay $891,572 in payroll and other taxes.
The office said Jordan formerly owned daycare businesses in Parkville and Platte City. Jordan also has to repay the money.
Jordan pleaded guilty in February to failing to pay over to the Internal Revenue Service about $891,572 in employment taxes withheld from her employees paychecks from 2009-2012. The office said she used the money to pay for her own personal expenses and expenses of her family.
