Federal Tax Fraud – Company

Fisher Sand & Gravel (FSG) was charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States by impeding, impairing, and obstructing the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the collection of federal taxes for the years 2001-2004. The company entered into a deferred prosecution agreement in which it admitted responsibility and agreed to pay a total of $1.16 million in restitution, penalties, and fines. The case stemmed from the prosecution of several FSG executives including owner Michael Fisher, who pleaded guilty to using the company to pay his and family members’ personal expenses and concealing those payments from the IRS.
