Non-profit director pleads guilty to 10 counts of tax evasion
Housing Advocates, Inc. director is also a lawyer, and the feds say he should have known better
Story by LYNDSEY SCHLEY


 
In The Region:

A lawyer and the director of a Cleveland non-profit pleaded guilty today to 10 counts of tax evasion.

Edward Kramer ran Housing Advocates, Inc. Mike Tobin of the U.S. Attorney’s office says Kramer withheld taxes from the payrolls of employees of the agency but never paid them to the government. He also failed to file tax returns in 2009 and 2010 and under reported his income for 2007 and 2008t.

Tobin says that resulted in about $500,000 of untaxed income and $80,000 of taxes that the government never received.

"Nobody enjoys paying taxes, but we all do it," Tobin says. "That’s how we have roads and police protection and all the other things that taxes pay for. I don’t think anybody enjoys it, but we all have an obligation to do it, particularly those who are lawyers. They have a special obligation to follow the law."

Kramer is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 13. He could face 18 to 24 months in federal prison.
