DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Davenport business owner has pleaded guilty to federal tax charges.

The Quad-City Times reports that Jonathan Folker entered the pleas Monday after making a deal with prosecutors on charges of tax evasion and filing a false tax return. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 9.

A plea agreement filed Tuesday says Folker didn't file individual returns for 2001 through 2011 or 2013 through 2017. It says that when he filed a return for 2012, he reported less income than he earned. The agreement also says Folker didn't file returns for his company, Nerdwerx, for 2011 through 2013.

The agreement says he owes the federal government nearly $257,000.
