A Las Vegas man pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to tax evasion for income earned from pandering and living from the earnings of a prostitute, according to the Internal Revenue Service.
Johnny Ray Taylor, 34, was charged with one count of tax evasion for the year 2010 and entered a plea agreement. He agreed to pay $117,559.82 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service for income earned during 2008, 2009 and 2010.
According to court documents, Taylor received $230,000 in gross income in 2010 alone and evaded an income tax of approximately $63,966.
Taylor admitted that the government could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he earned more than $10,000 in income in 2010 from pandering and living from the earnings of a prostitute.
He was able to conceal his income by having third parties pay his car loan and house payments. He also conducted other financial transactions in cash.
