Doyle faces a maximum fine of $100,000 and up to three years in prison, with a supervised early release of up to one year. Sentencing is set to take place on Feb. 16 before Federal District Judge Lawrence E. Kahn.

Doyle is the owner of a Saratoga County company that delegates home health care aides to patients’ homes. As mandated by her guilty plea, Doyle admitted to earlier crimes of filing false tax returns that underreported her business income in 2016 and 2017. Doyle withheld reporting $647,263 in income, resulting in a loss to the federal government of at least $94,522. 

In a related case, the previous owner of Doyle’s company, Betty J Marriott, pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns on March 24, 2021. A resident of Gansevoort, Marriott’s sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 21.  

Both cases are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Emily C. Powers.
