TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - The chief financial officer of a tutoring company that served school districts in New Jersey has been sentenced to more than a year in prison for falsifying the firm’s tax records.

James Wegeler filed a tax return in 2013 on behalf of Hillsborough-based American Tutor that contained false information in order to reduce the firm’s tax liability.

Wegeler admitted intentionally inflating its business expenses by claiming it had paid more compensation to employees than what it actually paid during the 2012 tax year.

The 74-year-old Pottersville man had pleaded guilty to charges of corporate tax evasion and aiding the filing of a false tax return. He received a 19-month sentence on Tuesday.
