The Canada Revenue Agency announced this week that the former proprietor of Lee's Village Restaurant in Steinbach, Tom Sung, was sentenced on Monday to a court-imposed fine of $73,568.58 for evading the payment of $53,265.21 in personal income tax, representing 138 percent of the federal income tax evaded.

The agency said between 2010 and 2013, Sung used two point of sale terminals at the business but only provided sales information and related bank statements for the transactions on one of the machines to his accountant.

An investigation found those unreported sales from the second terminal were used to make deposits, classified as wages, to Sung totalling $271,000. The deposits were not consistent with the income Sung reported on his personal tax filings, the agency said.

In addition to the fine, Sung will still have to pay the full amount of the tax owing, plus related interest and any penalties assessed by the CRA.
