Olathe man pleads guilty to tax evasion

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- An Olathe business owner pleaded guilty to not paying taxes on more than $370,000.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says in a news release that 41-year-old Marcos Bowman, the owner BCK Drywall, pleaded guilty Wednesday to tax evasion on his tax returns for 2007-2009. His gross receipts for commercial drywall work totaled more than $7.9 million during those years.

Bowman failed to pay $373,473 he owed on those receipts.

Grissom says Bowman used his company's bank account for personal expenses, including cars and a $355,000 home. He also didn't send tax forms to subcontractors so they could accurately report their pay.

He will be sentenced June 17.
