By  | 

A Bismarck man was sentenced for tax fraud on Tuesday.

Thirty-nine-year-old Solomon Lindsay was sentenced to time served plus three years of supervised release. He was charged with three counts of tax fraud.

U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Hoveland also ordered Lindsay to pay $300 to the Crime Victims' Fund, as well as restitution to the IRS.

An IRS investigation revealed that for the tax years 2009-2012, Lindsay ran a tax service out of his apartment, filing returns on behalf of others, which included inflated income figures and false credits.

Lindsay electronically filed the returns and deposited the refunds into his personal account.

The scam resulted in the IRS paying out fraudulent refunds totaling $140,741.
