A Utah man was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison after pleading guilty to failing to pay and account for trust fund taxes related to his four health care companies.
According to court records, Daniel Fry, 46, of Ogden, Utah, owned and operated four businesses in the Ogden area.
From January 2013 to December 2016, Fry withheld from employee paychecks and collected the trust fund taxes for the businesses.
He also reported the trust fund tax withholdings of his businesses to the IRS. At the same time, however, he failed to pay over any of the trust fund taxes that the businesses owed to the IRS.
Fry further failed to pay to the IRS the employer portion of the trust fund taxes owed by his businesses. In total, from January 2013 to December 2016, Fry owed and willfully failed to pay over to the IRS $568,590 owed by the businesses.
