Jerry Carter Jr. of Hillsborough also must serve three years of supervised release under the sentence imposed Wednesday. He had pleaded guilty last December to a complaint charging him with attempted tax evasion.

Carter also agreed to pay $833,586 in back taxes and penalties.

The 33-year-old, who operated Hoboken-based First Priority Pay, admitted that he purposely failed to provide the IRS with true, correct, and complete information regarding his income for 2007-2009. During that time, he under-reported his income by more than $1.8 million, which resulted in a tax loss to the government of approximately $476,832.
