MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The owner of Dahl Trucking in Elmore, Minn., was indicted Tuesday in federal court for avoiding payment of taxes on the wages of his employees from 2007 to 2010.
Marlin Dahl was specifically charged with 13 counts of failure to collect and pay Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) taxes.
The indictment alleged that from Jan. 1, 2007, through March 31, 2010, Dahl allegedly issued payroll checks that did not have any FICA withholdings deducted. He also reportedly caused wages to be recorded in the company books at Dahl Trucking as “road expense” reimbursements.
In total, Dahl failed to pay the IRS an estimated $168,219.
