Patrick McNiven, owner of Boca Styling — also known as “Tint World” — collected the tax over several years, but a Department of Revenue Investigator says he never paid the state. According to the investigative report, McNiven deposited $789,918 into his business bank account between September 2018 and October 2019, but never paid sales tax on that money.
McNiven is now charged with 14 counts of Sales Tax Evasion which is a 3rd Degree Felony.
