Former Medical Doctor Sentenced to Prison for Tax Evasion

MINNEAPOLIS – A former medical doctor has been sentenced to four months in federal prison, a six-month term of home confinement, two years supervised release, and a requirement to pay full restitution following an extensive tax-evasion scheme, announced U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger.

According to the plea agreement and other court documents, from at least 2000 until 2018, Joseph David Meyer, 62, of Roseau, Minnesota, earned significant taxable income as a licensed medical doctor as well as income and interest from his ownership of rental properties. Meyer repeatedly challenged his tax obligations in court, concealed his taxable income, and even sued his rental tenants for complying with legitimate IRS levies. Meyer’s evasion resulted in a total tax loss of $484,164.

Meyer pleaded guilty on June 29, 2022, to one count of tax evasion. Meyer was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court before Judge Donovan W. Frank.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by IRS – Criminal Investigations.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jordan Sing prosecuted the case.
