On April 28, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Qasim Khan of Milwaukee, Wisconsin pleaded guilty to willfully filing a false tax return. 

Khan is a businessman who helped secure international business deals for his clients. According to the DOJ, Khan owned and operated Global Focus Partners LLC, a consulting business. Khan successfully brokered contracts between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other businesses located in the United States and abroad. From 2015 to 2017, Khan purportedly reported his income from U.S.-based businesses, but failed to report over $350,000 in payments received from foreign companies in the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In total, Khan’s omission  of foreign-source income from his tax returns caused a tax loss to the IRS of approximately $127,306.

Khan is scheduled to be sentenced on August 15, 2023, and faces a maximum sentence of three years in prison in addition to a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties.
