Florence CPA charged with state tax evasion

A Florence County certified public accountant is in jail today following his arrest by South Carolina Department of Revenue agents on tax evasion charges.

Douglas Rollins Poston, Jr, 51, a self-employed CPA, is being held at the Florence County Law Enforcement Complex after he was charged with three counts of state income tax evasion.

Poston, a resident of Florence, is accused of willfully failing to report business income of $206,374 earned from 2003 - 2005 and pay state taxes of $3,490. He is facing up to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $30,000 if convicted of all the charges.

The Florence County Sheriff's Office assisted in Poston's arrest.
