Psychiatrist pleads guilty to tax-evasion charge

State Department of Taxation and Finance Acting Commissioner Jamie Woodward has announced that an East Rochester psychiatrist pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of failing to pay her state personal income taxes.

Virginia A. Wohltmann, 51, of 1108 Roosevelt Road, appeared June 23 before Acting Monroe County Court Judge Stephen T. Miller.

In December, she was charged with felony counts of failing to file state personal income tax returns for tax years 2004-2008 when she had treated patients at medical offices at 490 Cross Keys Office Park, Fairport, and at Nicholas H. Noyes Memorial Hospital Mental Health Service Department, Dansville.

Judge Miller sentenced Wohltmann to 96 hours of community service as part of a conditional discharge. Prior to the plea, she had filed the delinquent returns and paid more than $100,000 in back taxes, penalty and interest.

Wohltmann’s delinquencies were uncovered as part of a statewide enforcement initiative targeting individuals who fail to file their state income tax returns.

The state offers Voluntary Disclosure and Compliance programs to encourage delinquent taxpayers to become compliant without facing criminal prosecution or civil penalty. For more information visit www.nystax.gov.
