Owner Of Massachusetts Pavement Company Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

By Tiffany Williams – 

Monday, at the United States District Court in Boston, Robert Brainard, 52, of Weymouth, pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion.

Brainard, the former owner of Got Pavement Needs, Inc., underreported income on his personal tax returns for tax years 2014 through 2021, resulting in an income tax loss of more than $593,993. 

Brainard also tried to hide his control of the business by transferring ownership of the company in a straw sale, while maintaining control over the company’s operations and income.

U.S. District Court Judge Leo T. Sorokin scheduled sentencing for Oct. 17, 2022.
