The family owners of a popular spa destination in Carrollton have been indicted on felony charges for failure to pay $1.5 million in taxes over the course of three years, New York authorities announced Wednesday.

 

The case DOES NOT involve the Carrollton location. The charges were filed in the state of New York, where they own a 100,000-square foot spa facility in College Point, Queens.

 

The owners of Spa Castle Inc. didn't pay the sales, withholding, corporate and MTA surcharge taxes in New York that they owed from 2010 through 2013, NY state officials say.

 

"The scale of theft alleged in this case is staggering," said Acting Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Nonie Manion, who announced the indictment along with Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. 

 

The investigation began when authorities executed a search warrant at Spa Castle Inc. in August 2015, and found records showing the spa owners underreported earnings and paid workers and vendors in cash. 

 

Steven Chon, 57; his brothers Daniel Chon, 54, and Victor Chon, 50; and daughter Stepahanie Chon, 29, were arraigned Wednesday in Queens Supreme Court. They are out on $100,000 bond.
