Louisiana lab owner admits to filing false tax returns


A Louisiana business owner has pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns.

U.S. Attorney David C. Joseph said in a news release Tuesday that 57-year-old Robert Poimboeuf filed false returns from 2011 through 2015.

He and his wife are accused of under reporting gross receipts at a Shreveport medical business that provided laboratory and phlebotomy services.

As a result, the filing caused a tax loss of more than $1.9 million to the IRS. Sentencing is set for April 21, 2020.

Poimboeuf faces up to six years in prison.
