He will have to pay $115,757 to the IRS and more than $22,000 to the U.S. Coast Guard.

In total, Daniels made over $660,000 between 2014 and 2017 but didn’t file any income tax returns.

He owned and operated Sea Tech Marine Training, a business that offered Coast Guard-approved training. He also owned and operated Sea Test, another business that offered drug testing to people with USCG licenses.

Altogether, students who were supposed to receive 80 classroom hours only received 51 under his guidance. There were 23 USCG students that this applied to in 2019, authorities said.
