The former town administrator of Nahant and Saugus was sentenced to probation Tuesday for filing false tax returns in which he failed to report more than $375,000 in income, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Andrew R. Bisignan, 70, will serve the first four months in Coolidge House, with the following six months to be spent under home confinement, said the office of William D. Weinreb, acting US Attorney for the state, in a statement.

Bisignani pleaded guilty in federal court in December 2016 to four counts of filing false tax returns from 2010 to 2013, and was sentenced by US District Court Judge Leo T. Sorokin.

From 2010 to 2013, Bisignani collected rental income from three properties in Revere, and also collected interest “by making multiple, private, short-term loans that were secured by Massachusetts real estate,” said the statement.

He then underreported his total rental income and the interest income from the private loans, according to the statement.

Bisignani resigned from his position as Nahant town administrator in June 2014 amid questions about the awarding of public contracts, and was indicted on fraud charges at the end of that year in a still-ongoing case.
