A federal jury in Madison, Wisconsin, has convicted Frederick G. Kriemelmeyer of four counts of tax evasion. Kriemelmeyer operated in a dental practice in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
In 2007, the US District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin ordered Kriemelmeyer to pay $135,337 to the Internal Revenue Service for unpaid income taxes. By 2012, the IRS had assessed Kriemelmeyer for more than $450,000 in taxes, interest, and penalties.
Kriemelmeyer took a number of actions to evade paying the taxes he owed from at least 2013 through 2015, prosecutors said, including not filing tax returns reporting the income from his practice, directing his patients to pay him in cash or by check with blank payee lines, and paying his business and personal expenses with third-party checks and cash
US District Judge William M. Conley has set sentencing for May 19, 2020. Kriemelmeyer faces a statutory maximum sentence of five years in prison for each count of tax evasion. He also faces a period of supervised release, monetary penalties, and restitution.
