Indiana Secretary of State, Connie Lawson, has shut down a Fort Wayne car dealer for not paying taxes.
In a situation that began back in December of 2017 when the Indiana Secretary of State office began a routine audit of Mint Auto Sales in Fort Wayne, where irregularities were discovered in the audit, which led to an investigation.
The investigation revealed that the dealership was charging customers one price for purchasing a vehicle, and later reported a lower sales price to the Department of Revenue. It was then determined that the owner of the dealership, Sadruddin Kamdar, was not just failing to pay taxes to the Department of Revenue, but was also pocketing the money.
An investigation was started by the Grand Jury Division of the Marion County Prosecutor’s office because the dealership filed fraudulent paperwork with the Department of Revenue in Indianapolis. As a result of the investigation, charges were brought up.
Kamdar has taken a plea deal in order to avoid a trial and was sentenced to 910 days of probation, as well as being ordered to pay $536,448.02 in restitution to the Department of Revenue. Kamdar has also been barred from owning or operating another dealership in the state of Indiana for the rest of his life.
