TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- A southeast Kansas man is accused of falsely claiming millions dollars in federal tax refunds.
An indictment unsealed yesterday in U.S. District Court charges Jerold Fisher, of Arma, with two counts of filing false claims.
The indictment was initially returned in May. Prosecutors allege Fisher filed false tax forms claiming an alfalfa farm in Crawford County paid him wages of more than $8.8 million between 2006 and 2009.
They say that led to refunds of nearly $169,000 for 2008 and nearly $3.7 million for 2009.
It's unclear if any claims were paid.
