The federal government is pursuing more than $5.1 million in alleged unpaid taxes from hotelier and purported Sugar Loaf Resort owner Remo Polselli, according to a civil lawsuit filed this month in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.
According to the April 3 complaint submitted by the U.S. Department of Justice Tax Division, Polselli neglected to pay required taxes on withheld employee wages under 26 separate corporate holdings or entities in multiple locations across the U.S., including Dallas, Palm Beach, South Bend and Tempe. The lawsuit covers time periods ranging from the tax year ending in 1992 up through the tax year ending in 2001.
In the complaint, the government requests the court “enter judgment…against Polselli in the total amount of $5,156,184.91 plus statutory additions from and after that date, including interest.” The lawsuit also alleges in that many of the described instances of unpaid taxes, Polselli was notified of owed assessments and ordered to make payments, but that he “failed, neglected or refused to pay in full the amount of liabilities.”
