Car dealer evaded €86,500 in vehicle tax

A CAR dealer who evaded paying €86,500 in tax on high-end vehicles has had his sentencing adjourned to allow for a psychological report.

Counsel for Lee Cullen (41) also told Dublin Circuit Criminal Court that he aims to pay back the State by selling a property in Spain and asked for time to find a buyer.

Cullen, of Starwood, Coolmine, Saggart, Co Dublin, pleaded guilty to evading Vehicle Registration Tax on seven Range Rovers at the Vehicle Registration Office, Main Street, Tallaght, between February 13, 2006 and March 29, 2007.

Judge Patrick McCartan agreed to put the matter back for an updated report and remanded Cullen on continuing bail until November.
