As part of an ongoing effort to keep taxpayers honest, federal prosecutors have bagged James Seltzer, a California securities lawyer who pleaded guilty to missing the IRS filing deadline four consecutive times.

Seltzer earned more than $2 million between 1997 and 2000, but a divorce and other events in his life “led to a disorganization in which his personal taxes were not timely filed,” according to an announcement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Most of that income derives from Seltzer’s earnings in 1999, which exceeded $1.6 million.
