A former attorney in Massachusetts was sentenced to two years in prison for engaging in a years-long scheme to defraud the IRS and evade paying taxes on more than $3 million.

Daniel P. Gibson, 62, of Andover, Massachusetts, was also sentenced to two years of supervised release and ordered to pay restitution in an amount to be determined at a later time.

In May 2019, Gibson was convicted at trial of two counts of tax fraud and one count of conspiring to defraud the IRS. Evidence showed that Gibson conspired with his accountant to prepare and file false tax returns that intentionally underreported approximately $3.7 million in income earned from his law firm.
