The corporate officers of a Mitchell cleaning business have each been charged with a felony for allegedly failing to pay state sales taxes for three months in 2007.
Complaints were filed Thursday against Darren Sterk and Kelly Sterk, corporate officers for Servicemaster by Sterk Inc., by Davison County Deputy State’s Attorney Bob O’Keefe.
It alleges the Sterks failed to pay the required state sales taxes for their business in May 2007, July 2007 and September 2007.
Each is charged with three misdemeanor counts of failure to pay sales tax — one for each month they allegedly failed to pay — and one felony count of failing to pay sales tax two or more times within a 12-month period.
They face a maximum of two years in prison and a $4,000 fine if convicted of the felony.
O’Keefe declined to provide further details of the allegations when contacted Tuesday by The Daily Republic. He was unaware if warrants already filed with the Davison County Clerk of Courts have been served on the Sterks.
