GREEN BAY, Wis. -

An eastern Wisconsin business owner will spend about a year in prison for failing to pay taxes that had been withheld from employees' wages.

According to court records, Lisa Bartz Vanden Elzen, co-owner of Dairy Transport Services of De Pere, failed to pay about $193,000 in payroll taxes. She's also accused of failing to pay the Internal Revenue Service $81,000, the employer's matching share of those taxes.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported the 47-year-old was found guilty in U.S. District Court of failing to pay payroll taxes that had been withheld from employee wages from July 2005 to December 2010.

She was sentenced to 366 days in prison and ordered to pay restitution of $274,000 for federal tax violations.

Vanden Elzen owns the business with her husband.
