Lynda Zimmermann pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false tax return and agreed to pay $1,088,649.22 to the IRS prior to sentencing. Zimmermann and her husband owned a company in Tucson that provided lightning detection and warning systems to golf courses, parks and mines around the world.
In 2014 Zimmermann provided her accountants with gross receipts totaling $1,322,680 when the actual number was $2,405,276. This resulted in an underreporting of more than one million dollars on that year’s Form 1040.
Zimmermann faces up to five years in prison.
