The owner of the well-known men's clothing store Mohan's Custom Tailors in Manhattan has been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison for tax fraud and failure to report a bank account in China, according to officials.

Mohanbhai Ramchandani, 67, of East Elmhurst, Queens, also was fined $75,000, sentenced to a year of home detention with electronic monitoring after prison, and 3 years of supervised release late Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Joseph Bianco at the federal court in Central Islip.

The sentence is part of an $8 million tax-evasion scheme, officials said.

Ramchandani pleaded guilty to similar charges in state court last year, officials said.

Ramchandani will serve his sentence in a federal prison, his attorney, James Druker of Garden City, said Thursday. Ramchandani already has paid back $8 million in federal and state taxes andpenalties, Druker said.

When Ramchandani pleaded guilty to the federal charges in August, Eastern District U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said he "built a successful business that made millions. Rather than live up to his financial obligations. . . . Ramchandani tried to evade not just his lawful tax reporting obligations but also the laws that protect our economy."
