Jefferson County marina owner sentenced for fake tax returns

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Jefferson County marina co-owner was sentenced in federal court Thursday for filing fake tax returns.

Stanley H. Veltkamp, 69, of White Pine, was ordered to serve four months in prison, followed by one year of supervised release.

During 2004-2008, Veltkamp rented boat slips, boats and cabins, along with operating a marina store and campground.

Veltkamp admitted his workers were paid part of their wages by check and part by cash, so the marina could avoid paying Social Security and Medicare taxes.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Veltkamp has already paid restitution of more than $80,000.
