A Latrobe woman will be arraigned next week in federal court in Pittsburgh on charges that she evaded income taxes.

The four-count indictment earlier this month charged Debra J. Feather, 63, of Eleanor Drive with tax evasion.

According to the indictment, between 2007 through 2010, Feather's joint federal tax returns were false because she failed to declare “substantial income” and paid less in taxes than she owed. The indictment does not list the amount of income Feather earned during that time period.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence on each count of five years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. Under the federal sentencing guidelines, the sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and whether Feather has a prior record.

Feather reported varying annual incomes during that period ranging from more than $64,000 to more than $65,000. She paid taxes ranging from $8,400 to $8,700 when her actual taxable income was much higher, according to the indictment.
