No Way To Handle an IRS Collection Matter - Florida Man Sentenced to Three (3) Years in Prison for Obstruction

According to DoJ, a Florida man was sentenced to 36 months in prison today for corruptly obstructing the due administration of the internal revenue laws. 

According to evidence presented at trial, since 1999, Dennis J. Nagle, 67, refused to voluntarily pay federal income taxes. As a result, by 2014, he had an outstanding tax balance of more than $400,000. 

When the IRS attempted to collect Nagle’s unpaid taxes by filing liens and levying his paychecks and pension, Nagle obstructed the IRS’s collection efforts. Nagle submitted false forms to his employer claiming he was exempt from federal tax withholding, attempted to pay off his tax debts with checks written on a closed bank account, and threatened to file criminal complaints against IRS collection officers. 

In total, Nagle sent the IRS at least 15 worthless payments, purportedly totaling more than $1.9 million dollars. 

A jury convicted Nagle on Jan. 30, 2020. In addition to the Three (3) Years in Prison, U.S. District Judge Paul G. Byron ordered Nagle to serve one (1) year of supervised release and to pay approximately $221,502 in restitution to the United States.
