Two Thunder Bay businessmen have been sentenced to a combined two years in prison and fined more than $305,000 in a recent tax-evasion case.

Allan Curle and Bruce Johnson, directors of Norall Group Contracting Inc., have each been found guilty of one count of tax evasion and one count of conspiracy to commit tax evasion.

Curle was handed a 14-month sentence and fined $174,729, while Johnson earned a 10-month sentence and a fine of $130,344.

The fines equal the amount of the $196,428 in taxes owed, interest and a 50 per cent penalty, according to a judgment announced on the Canada Revenue Agency website.

Last December the company pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit tax evasion and was fined $32,118.

According to CRA documents, the company failed to report $629,842 in income, paid to Curle and Johnson by Norall for services rendered.

Both Curle and Johnson attempted to use the natural persons defence, a theory that has repeatedly failed in front of the courts.

The sentence was handed down on June 2, the decision in late March.
