A Durham couple were sentenced Wednesday on state tax charges filed by the state Department of Revenue.

Thomas Loflin, 62, and Ann Loflin, 67, of 2726 Circle Drive pleaded guilty June 6 to six counts each of willful failure to file North Carolina individual income tax returns for 1998 through 2003. They appealed their sentences handed down in August by Judge Jennifer Knox in Wake County Superior Court.

The Loflins withdrew their appeal Wednesday and were sentenced Wednesday to a 45-day prison term. The prison term was suspended and they were placed on probation for 24 months. Thomas Loflin was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service, and they each were ordered to pay $1,000 criminal fines. They were also ordered to file and pay all taxes due on future returns in a timely manner. And they must report their sentencing to the N. C. Bar Association.
