Golembioski pleaded guilty to one count of making and subscribing to a false tax return. The IRS report also shows he failed to report additional income from his dental practice on tax returns from 2013 through 2016. Court records do not indicate how much he withheld in each return.
His sentencing is scheduled for March 8. He faces up to three years in federal prison and fines of $250,000.
Golembioski has held a dentistry license since September 1985, according to the state Division of Consumer Affairs. His certificate remains active and no disciplinary actions by the New Jersey State Board of Dentistry have been taken.
