Vanessa Roberts Avery, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Mariusz Kalinowski, of Woodstock, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to seven months of imprisonment, followed by one year of supervised release, for a tax fraud offense. Judge Bryant also ordered Kalinowski to pay a $16,500 fine.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Kalinowski owns and operates Kalinowski General Construction, Inc., based in Webster, Massachusetts, which provides residential and commercial construction services in Connecticut and Massachusetts. For the 2010 through 2013 tax years, Kalinowski failed to report on his personal federal tax returns $927,828 in income from his business and, as a result, failed to pay approximately $174,746 in taxes on that income.

On November 29, 2022, Kalinowski pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false tax return.

Kalinowski has paid the IRS the $174,746 in taxes he owed.

Kalinowski, who is released on bond, is required to report to prison on June 20.

This investigation was conducted by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer R. Laraia and Peter S. Jongbloed.
