Chappaqua tax firm partner arrested for tax evasion

Chappaqua tax firm partner arrested for tax evasion

William J. O'Hagan is an attorney and certified public accountant based in the PricewaterhouseCoopers' New York City office

A tax partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers who lives in Chappaqua has been arrested by state officials, who allege he failed to file state personal income tax returns for three years in a row.

William J. O’Hagan, 56, of 940 King St., Chappaqua, is charged with two counts of criminal tax fraud, and failure to file a personal income tax return "in a timely manner" for the years 2010 to 2012, state officials said. The charges are felonies and carry a potential prison term.

O'Hagan is an attorney and certified public accountant based in the firm's New York City office, according to state officials. He also serves on an advisory board for the business school at Fordham University, according to the college's website.

Court documents allege his actions enabled him to avoid paying the state over $86,000.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges in Albany City Court and was released on his own recognizance, state officials said. He is due back in court Jan. 6.
