Harrison Boldt, a Patterson dentist, has been arrested and charged with tax fraud for allegedly failing to pay $220,200 in personal income taxes, according to the state Department of Taxation and Finance.
Boldt, 56, surrendered yesterday at the New Castle Police Department and was arraigned in front of Town Justice Noah Sorkin. He was charged with four counts of criminal tax fraud and one count of repeated failure to file personal income taxes. Both are class E felonies.
Boldt, who lives at 122 Somerset Drive, was released on his own recognizance. He was arrested following an investigation by the Department of Taxation and Finance’s Criminal Investigations Division and will be prosecuted by the Westchester County District Attorney’s office. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 21.
Boldt failed to file personal income-tax returns for 2008, 2009 and 2010 and didn’t remit payment in 2011, according to court documents.
In New York, 96 percent of taxes are paid by businesses and individuals who voluntarily meet their tax responsibilities. The rest is collected through the Tax Department’s audit, collections and criminal investigations programs.
