PITTSBURGH -

A Grove City businessman was sentenced in federal court Tuesday after he scammed the IRS out of nearly $50,000.

Daniel Spatara will spend two years on probation and was given a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. 

Spatara, who owned a painting business, pleaded guilty to a charge of filing a false tax return earlier this year. 

According to information provided during the sentencing hearing, Spatara filed false 1040 tax returns for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, failing to report all of the gross receipts of his business.

The total tax loss was $49,643.
