Sean Howell of Hornor, Townsend & Kent was recently barred from the securities industry. According to FINRA, Mr. Howell submitted inaccurate life insurance applications to his employer to collect commissions of approximately $92,000. At the same time, he willfully withheld information about his federal tax deficiency. Stockbrokers are required to disclose any liens against them. This is important information for investors to have: if a financial advisor cannot pay his taxes, a potential customer might think twice before trusting him with client funds.
