Local man sentenced for tax fraud

U.S. District Judge Michael H. Simon last month sentenced Miles J. Julison to four years in federal prison after he filed tax returns falsely claiming total refunds of more than $1.9 million, despite having paid no federal income taxes in those years.

A resident of Clackamas and a former real estate investor, Julison was found guilty on Aug. 9. He also was mandated to serve three years of post-release supervision and to pay the IRS $411,773 in restitution.

“It is a serious sentence for a serious crime,” said U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall. “Miles Julison stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from his neighbors, honest and hardworking taxpayers. He tried to steal even more and helped others do the same. The severity of the sentence properly reflects the extent of his criminal conduct.”

The evidence at trial established that in July 2008, Julison falsely claimed on his tax return that he had earned more than $500,000 in 2007 and that almost all of it had been withheld for taxes. He then fraudulently claimed he was due a tax refund of $411,773. The IRS issued him a check for that amount two weeks later. In January 2009, Julison falsely claimed on his tax return that he had earned more than $2.3 million in 2008, and that all but $815 of that total had been withheld for taxes. He fraudulently claimed a tax refund of more than $1.5 million. By then, however, Julison already was under criminal investigation, and the refund never was issued.
