  NEWARK – A Monmouth County man allegedly failed to disclose tens of thousands of dollars he made from his gambling business, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said.

  Steven Bryce, 50, was charged with filing a false tax return for 2013. His address was not disclosed; he was only described as living in Monmouth County.

  According to the police, the 2013 tax return he filed on behalf of himself and his spouse stated they had a total income of $112,899. It omitted tens of thousands of dollars from his gambling business.

  The charge carries a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a maximum $250,000 fine.

  U.S. Attorney Carpenito thanked special agents of IRS-Criminal Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Michael Montanez and special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Acting Special Agent in Charge Joe Denahan in Newark with the investigation.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney J Fortier Imbert of the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Special Prosecutions Division.
