Attorney Charged With Tax Evasion, Accused Of Hiding $200,000 In Income

BOSTON (AP) — Federal authorities say they’ve charged a Massachusetts attorney with four counts of tax evasion.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Boston, 57-year-old Gregory Olchowski was paid nearly $200,000 under the table over several years while he was an officer for an unnamed Turners Falls company and did not report the additional income on his tax returns.

He’s also accused of hiding documents about the unreported income.

Court papers say Olchowski hid the documents after he was informed by the president of the company last year that the president was the subject of a federal investigation.

Olchowski has an office in Greenfield and lives in Colrain.
