Forsyth County Business Owner Guilty of State Tax Charges

Date: 6/17/2005

A Forsyth County business owner pleaded guilty Thursday to charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Pearce D. Jacobs pleaded guilty on June 16, 2005 to failure to file and pay the state sales and withholding taxes. Jacobs is the owner of Dean’s Mini Mart and Dean’s Robinhood Towing and Service.

Judge Dale Graham issued Jacobs a 45-day sentence, which was suspended for 18 months. He was also ordered to pay restitution to the North Carolina Department of Revenue and to pay court costs.

The charges against Jacobs are the result of efforts by the Department’s Winston-Salem Collections Office.
