A Connecticut man has been sentenced to prison for failing to pay nearly $500,000 in federal income taxes.

Federal prosecutors in Connecticut say 49-year-old Ira Malkin was sentenced to six months in prison Thursday. He pleaded guilty in February to tax evasion.

Court records show the Hamden man worked at Good Copy Printing Center Inc. in New Haven, and the company underreported his income on W-2 forms filed with the IRS between 2003 and 2012.

Investigators say Malkin underreported more than $1.5 million in income and failed to pay $484,581 in federal income taxes.

He still owes the IRS more than $700,000 in interest and penalties.

Malkin is free on $50,000 bond. He is scheduled to report to prison Oct. 11.
