A Crawford County man pleaded guilty Friday to a filing false federal tax returns that brought him more than $4 million.

Jerold D. Fisher, 49, Arma, pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false return, according to a release by U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office. The returns were filed from 2006 to 2009, while he was a registered agent for Fisher Alfalfa Farms, the release said.

Fisher prepared false returns for himself and his mother that brought them refunds in excess of what he was owed. The amount of claims for refunds started at about $17,000 and increased to more than $3.8 million on an income of more than $8 million in 2009, the release said.

He has agreed to pay restitution of more than $4 million. Sentencing is set for May 27.
