CNY used car dealer accused of failing to pay $206K in sales taxes

A central New York used car dealer has been arrested for allegedly failing to pay more than $206,000 in sales taxes to the state Department of Taxation and Finance.

Samy S. Guindy, 53, of 2746 W. Foxhill Lane, Camillus, has been charged with two counts of second-degree grand larceny, 30 counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and 30 counts of third-degree criminal tax fraud, all felonies.

The charges stem from Guindy’s ownership of two used car dealerships in Syracuse, Auto Hunter on Lodi Street and the now-defunct Auto Solution of CNY on West Genesee Street.

Guindy is accused of under-reporting sales from December 2010 through August 2015 at Auto Solution of CNY. He failed to pay at least $68,856 in sales taxes to the state, authorities said.
