Federal Court Sentencing for Tax Evaders

Two brothers were sentenced Friday in Lubbock for what is believed to be one of the largest motor fuel tax evasion scams in the U.S. Two men falsely claimed motor fuel that they purchased was exempt from taxation because it was exported out of the state in which it was bought.

Bruce and Brian Nicolson each received prison sentences Friday for the scam. Bruce will serve 42 months behind bars while his brother Brian will serve eight.

The brothers were also ordered to pay $5.5 million in restitution.
