Nov. 9, 2015 Staff Report

The owner of a Queens Boulevard car dealership faces up to 15 years in prison for tax fraud, according to the Queens District Attorney.

Maxim Fuzailov and his business L.T. Motors Auto Sales at Queens Boulevard and 37th Street have been charged with criminal tax fraud, grand larceny and more for allegedly stealing nearly $200,000 in State and local taxes.

If convicted, Fuzailov faces up to 15 years in prison, while his business could be hit with a fine of up to $10,000 or double the amount of the illegal gain.

“Sales taxes are meant for the public treasury – not the pockets of business owners,” Queens DA Richard Brown said. “The merchant is accused of purposefully defrauding the state and local government out of these funds – funds that should have in this case been used in the public interest. This kind of tax fraud makes every New Yorker a victim.”

Fuzailov was arraigned last week and must return to court on Nov. 25.

Neither Fuzailov nor his attorney could be reached as of press time.
