Dr. Michael N. Mangold pleaded guilty to tax evasion and making false statements today in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced the Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Mangold was indicted in October 2012.

Mangold further admitted that he made false statements to the civil and criminal-side of the IRS during the investigation. In total, Mangold owed the IRS approximately $191,577 in taxes based on his income and wages during the relevant calendar years, plus interest.
Mangold also admitted that he made materially false statements in the course of a civil lawsuit concerning his failure to repay federal loan obligations by submitting a false financial affidavit to government officials, which contained false statements about the amount of income he earned as a doctor.
