Santa Fe publisher pleads guilty to attempted tax evasion
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A Santa Fe magazine publisher who owes the state more than $100,000 in unpaid gross receipts tax has pleaded guilty to attempted tax evasion.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Trend magazine publisher Cynthia Canyon pleaded guilty on Monday to five felony counts of attempting to evade taxes.
Canyon is expected to serve five years of supervised probation and pay restitution as part of a plea deal.
According the agreement, if Canyon violates probation she could be sent to jail for the remaining term of the probation. If she completes probation without violating, she will receive a conditional discharge — meaning she will not have a conviction on her record.
