A telecommunications executive once called the biggest tax cheat in U.S. history is getting hit with new Internal Revenue Service demands seeking hundreds of millions of dollars just as he starts a nine-year federal prison term.
Prosecutors are calling for the maximum prison sentence allowed under federal guidelines for a prominent D.C. eye surgeon who admitted bilking Medicare and other health plans of more than $1 million.
Walter Anderson may not pay the full tax due because the Internal Revenue Service cannot fully and adequately defend against the assertions he has made in [tax court] without the grand jury materials, Miss Menzer wrote.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan B. Menzer said that of 136 cataract procedures Greer performed from 1999 to 2002, he claimed that in 108 of them he needed to perform a "scleral graft" to mend a burn on the white part of the eye.
