Harrisburg — The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Travis Stelzer of Pelham, Massachusetts, was sentenced on March 28, 2023, to one year and one day in prison by United States District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner for tax evasion.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Stelzer filed tax forms with the IRS on January 29, 2016, where he under-reported his gross receipts in his tax returns that he filed on behalf of his staffing business, Top Gun Staffing, Inc., that he operated in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. He also misrepresented the income he received from his company. Seltzer entered a guilty plea to tax evasion on October 3, 2022 and agreed to pay the IRS $255,353 in restitution owed.

The case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael A. Consiglio is prosecuting the case.
