IRS Reels In Tax Cheating Fisherman

Posted on January 14, 2022

Alfredo Loya, a commercial fisherman from Virginia, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for failing to pay his federal income taxes for nearly a decade.

Loya was employed by a number of companies as an independent contractor from 2006 to 2014. From 2006 to 2008 and from 2014 to 2016 he filed no tax returns. He filed returns from 2011 to 2013 but did not pay any of the taxes he owed during that time.

In order to avoid paying taxes and in an effort to hide his income, Loya rarely used a credit card and paid for almost everything in cash. From 2012 to 2016 he cashed 71 paychecks made payable to him from fishing companies, for a total of $840,400.

The overall tax loss to the IRS was determined to be $238,967.
