Veteran Internal Revenue Service agent accused of trying to evade taxes

Harry Willner, an
Internal Revenue Service agent since 1974, has
been arrested on suspicion of trying to find ways for himself and others to
dodge US income taxes.
Willner was charged him with corrupt interference with the administration of tax
laws and willful aiding in the preparation of a false tax return, according to
US reports.

If convicted, he could face up to three years in prison on each of six
counts.

In court papers, prosecutors said Willner engaged in the scheme while working
as a revenue agent with the large and mid-size business unit of the IRS in New
York.
