A former Pee Dee area school superintendent was arrested Monday by South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) officials for five counts of willful attempt to evade income taxes.
Nathaniel Miller, the former Marion County School District 2 superintendent who pleaded guilty to embezzlement last month, failed to accurately report income received during 2005 – 2009 as required by law.
Over that period, Miller, 61, reported a total gross income of $593,342 and $3,953 in taxes due to the state. However, SCDOR’s investigation of Miller’s bank account showed deposits that significantly exceeded his known income.
Miller’s taxable amount of unreported income for 2005 – 2009 totals $625,609.99 with a South Carolina tax liability of $41,684.90, according to the agency.
If convicted of all charges brought against him, Miller could face up to 25 years in prison and/or $50,000 in fines. He was sentenced to six years in prison for his embezzlement charges.
Miller is currently being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Columbia where he is awaiting a bond hearing.
