Jamerson was indicted by a federal grand jury on 11 counts of willfully

“According to court
pleadings, Jamerson deducted and collected from his employees’ paychecks
federal income taxes and employment taxes in the amount of $63,929 over the
11 tax quarters, but failed to file the employment tax returns and pay over
the related employment taxes,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
The case was
investigated by Special Agents from IRS Criminal Investigation.
