Feds indict Canfield doctor

Posted: Updated:

A physician from Canfield has been charged with failing to turn over to the IRS, $30,661 in Social Security, Medicare and employment taxes collected from his employees.

Nicholas M. Garritano, 54, is charged with a willful failure to pay over taxes, according to Carole S. Rendon, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

"This defendant took out the taxes from his employees but kept the money for himself," Rendon said. "He victimized his workers and those who paid their fair share of taxes."

The eleven count indictment alleges that from 2009 through 2012, Garritano was responsible for the corporation’s business and financial operations.

Garritano caused the corporation to pay taxable wages and salaries to its employees, from which federal income and FICA taxes were withheld, according to the indictment.

Although the corporation withheld employment taxes from the wages of its employees for each quarter, the Garritano failed to pay over the full amount of the withheld taxes to the IRS, according to the indictment.
