A health care executive in Texas was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison and ordered to pay more than $3.4 million in restitution for defrauding the IRS.
Donald O’Connor Ramsey, 72, pleaded guilty to failure to pay over withholding and FICA taxes in February 2020.
According to court documents, Ramsey, the owner and chief financial officer of Community Care Medical (CCM) and Medical Case Management & Social Services (MCM), failed to pay employment taxes to the IRS from 2013 to 2018. Ramsey failed to regularly file quarterly returns with the IRS, while continuing to withhold his employees’ salaries. Ramsey’s conduct resulted in a tax loss of approximately $1.9 million to the IRS.
