Coram coin dealer sentenced for tax fraud, officials say

A Coram collectible coin dealer who admitted to tax fraud was ordered Wednesday to repay the state more than $182,000 and sentenced to three years' probation, state tax officials said.

Anthony Caprisecca Jr., had admitted in July that he intentionally failed to file personal income tax returns and to report almost $1.2 million in taxable income from 2007 to 2011, according to the state Department of Taxation and Finance. By doing so, he avoided paying $77,721 in taxes.

He plead guilty to fifth-degree criminal tax fraud, a misdemeanor, officials said.

Caprisecca, of 3 Magic Mountain Dr., operated Empire Commodities and other business entities, state officials said.

The amount he must repay includes penalty and interest, authorities said.

Caprisecca could not be reached.

The name of Caprisecca's attorney was not immediately available.
