WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a North Carolina man has pleaded guilty to income tax evasion as well as possession of an unregistered firearm.

A statement from the U.S. Department of Justice says 44-year-old Reuben T. DeHaan of Kings Mountain entered his plea on Wednesday. A sentencing date hasn’t been set.

Prosecutors said DeHaan owned a holistic business, and with help set up straw companies and opened bank accounts to hide income and assets from the Internal Revenue Service. Court documents show that between 2008 through 2014, DeHaan earned more than $2.7 million, but didn’t file income tax returns for those years and evaded approximately $740,000 in taxes.

DeHaan also admitted to possessing a short barrel rifle and two silencers not registered to him in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.
