Topeka man receives prison time and a hefty fine for tax fraud

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A southeast Kansas man was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison for receiving millions of dollars in false tax refunds.

Federal prosecutors say 49-year-old Jerold D. Fisher, of Arma, was sentenced Monday to 41 months in prison. He was also ordered to pay restitution of more than $4 million.

Fisher pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false federal tax return. He admitted that while he worked for Fisher Alfalfa Farms from 2006 to 2009, he prepared false federal tax returns for himself and his mother to receive tax refunds they were not owed.

By 2009, he fraudulently claimed withholding of more than $3.8 million on income of more than $8 million.
