A Millersburg man was sentenced to more than two years in prison for fraudulently claiming more than $1.1 million in tax refunds to which he was not entitled, said Acting U.S. Attorney David A. Sierleja and Frank S. Turner II, Acting Special Agent in Charge, IRS Criminal Investigation, Cincinnati Field Office.

Dennis Dean Miller, 62, was found guilty of six counts of false claims and one count of obstructing internal revenue laws.

Miller falsely reported that financial institutions had withheld large amounts of federal income tax on income that did not exist in reality. He falsely filed for tax refunds of $1,121,420 for tax years 2006 through 2011, according to the indictment.

Miller was sentenced to 26 months in prison by U.S. District Judge James Gwin. The judge also ordered Miller to pay $132,147 in restitution.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Henry F. DeBaggis following an investigation by the IRS.
