ATTORNEY GENERAL PREATE: OWNER OF A CHESTER COUNTY BUSINESS CHARGED
 WITH 10 COUNTS OF FAILING TO FILE AND REMIT EMPLOYEES' TAXES
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney General Ernie Preate Jr. today charged the owner of a Chester County refuse-hauling business with 10 counts of failing to file and remit employees' taxes totaling $32,329 to the Commonwealth over an 18-month period.
 Agents for Preate's Bureau of Criminal Investigation filed the charges today against Ernest Barkman, president and sole stockholder of E.B. Corp. Inc., whose commercial name is Twin County Disposals.
 Barkman, 51, has operated the business since 1984 from his home at state Route 10 and Welsh Road in Honey Brook, Chester County.
 The case was referred to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation by the state Department of Revenue's Criminal Tax Investigation Division.
 According to the criminal complaint, Twin County Disposals has not filed its quarterly returns or receipts with the Revenue Department since before April, 1990.
 The complaint charges that the firm's total employees numbered between 64 and 94 over an 18-month period during which, the state charges, taxes were not paid.
 According to the criminal complaint, Barkman's former bookkeeper and his accountant both told investigators that they repeatedly informed Barkman about his tax obligations.
 Barkman faces three misdemeanor counts of failing to file employer withholding tax returns. Each count carries a maximum penalty of two years imprisonment and a $5,000 fine.
 He is also charged with seven counts of failing to remit employer withholding taxes. Each count carries a maximum penalty of two years imprisonment and a $25,000 fine.
 The criminal complaint was filed today against Barkman before District Justice Joseph Solomon of Harrisburg who will issue a summons directing Barkman to appear at a preliminary hearing on a date to be set.
 Senior Deputy Attorney General Marsha V. Mills will serve as prosecutor.
