The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance announced today that Dr. Mian Majeed, an Amherst physician, pled guilty to failing to file New York State personal income taxes.
On March 8, 2012, Mian Majeed of 13 Viscount Drive, Williamsville, admitted that he violated 1801(a) of the tax law, a misdemeanor, before the Honorable Geoffrey Klein in Amherst town court. Dr. Majeed was ordered to pay his outstanding tax liability. He advised the court that he has made almost all of his required restitution. Dr. Majeed was sentenced to a conditional discharge upon payment of the remaining amount due.
An investigation conducted by the New York State Tax Department found that Dr. Mian Majeed had failed to report over $984,506 of income and failed to remit over $34,884 of personal income taxes. Dr. Majeed failed to file personal income tax returns or pay income taxes for years 2004 through 2009.
New York State Tax Commissioner Thomas H. Mattox thanked the Erie County District Attorney's Office for their hard work in prosecuting this case. The case originated in the Buffalo Criminal Investigations Division.
