Monroe Man Sentenced To Prison For Interfering With IRS

WASHINGTON – A Monroe man was sentenced today to 18 months in prison for attempting to interfere with the due administration of the IRS laws.

According to court documents, between October 2007 and September 2011, Billy Darryl Floyd committed acts in order to obstruct and impede the Internal Revenue Service.

These acts include filing false income tax returns, which falsely reported that his income was zero.

Additionally, Floyd submitted fictitious “Surety Bonds” to the IRS attempting to satisfy his outstanding tax liability.

Floyd also interfered with the sale of property seized from him to satisfy his outstanding tax liabilities by threatening IRS employees conducting the sale and threatening to sue buyers.

Floyd’s obstructive acts caused a tax loss of approximately $170,471.

In addition to the prison term, Floyd was ordered to serve one year of supervised release and to pay $170,471 in restitution to the IRS.
