FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man has been ordered to pay back $45,000 for filing a false income tax return.

Authorities say 50-year-old Mkronja Redic lied about the amount of his gross receipts and sales in an attempt to minimize the amount of taxes he would owe the IRS.

Redic pleaded guilty in December to making and subscribing a false federal tax return.

In addition to the restitution order, U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson sentenced Redic to serve 10 months of electronic home monitoring and five years of supervised probation.

IRS Special Agent Shea Jones says that while some believe tax fraud is a victimless crime, other law-abiding citizens wind up paying the difference.
