Feds: Trinidad casino owner stiffed US on taxes

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man is charged with failing to pay taxes on nearly $4 million in earnings from a casino he owned in Trinidad.

David Migliore is scheduled to make an initial appearance Monday in federal court in Newark. He’s charged with failing to pay taxes on about $3.9 million in income for 2009, 2010 and 2011.

The U.S. attorney’s office says Migliore owned the Island Club Casino in Trinidad as well as several limited liability corporations in New Jersey.

The 50-year-old Brielle resident faces three counts of tax evasion and three counts of failing to file personal income taxes. A message seeking comment was left for his attorney.
