The US attorney’s office in New Hampshire said a man has pleaded guilty to charges of paying a bribe to an IRS agent to reduce his business taxes. The IRS agent was conducting an audit of a nail salon in Newington in December 2011. US Attorney John Kacavas said the owner of the salon, identified as Hoang Hoang of Seabrook, offered to pay the agent $4,000 personally if the agent could reduce the business’s tax liability. Kacavas said the two met in January and the agent was paid over $2,000 to influence the outcome of the audit.
