A resident of Colorado pleaded guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado to four counts of filing a false income tax return, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division.
According to court documents, Jason Tammen falsified his income tax returns for tax years 2012, through 2015, by fraudulently inflating his federal and state tax withholdings. By claiming inflated federal and state withholding amounts, Tammen received tax refunds he was not entitled to and avoided paying taxes that he owed.
Sentencing is scheduled for November 29, 2018. Tammen faces a statutory maximum sentence of three years in prison on each count, as well as a term of supervised release, restitution and monetary penalties.
Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Zuckerman thanked special agents of IRS Criminal Investigation, who conducted the investigation, and Tax Division Trial Attorneys Sarah A. Kiewlicz and Lee F. Langston, who are prosecuting the case.
