Gulfport man admits failing to file tax form but disputes owing $435K
Gulfport -- Sentencing in an income tax case has been delayed because the defendant disputes that he owes $435,797.96, federal court records show.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office had alleged Samuel John Frazier, also known as Johnny Frazier, had a gross income of $618,253.53 for the 2009 tax year and failed to file a return by Oct. 15, 2010.
Frazier, from Gulfport, has pleaded guilty to willful failing to file a tax return and was to be sentenced Monday.
Frazier pleaded guilty on Nov. 8 and signed an agreement to pay the full amount ordered. The amount due will “include relevant conduct for tax years 2007 to 2010, which amount is not limited to the count of conviction,” the agreement says.
