DETROIT, MICHIGAN – In connection with the President’s failure to report over $500,000 in income from a school district contractor, the former President of the Madison District Public Schools Board of Education has been charged with tax evasion and failure to file tax returns.

Albert Morrison faces four felony counts of federal income tax evasion and four felony counts of failure to file federal income tax returns. Morrison was elected President of the Madison District Public Schools Board of Education from 2012 to 2018, according to the indictment. Owner A was a co-owner of a building maintenance and reconstruction company (Company A) during his tenure as President. Company A was routinely awarded maintenance and construction projects in the Madison District Public Schools.

From 2014 to 2018, Owner A, who was a long-time friend of Morrison, wrote checks from Company A to Morrison’s solely owned business, Comfort Consulting. Morrison deposited his friend’s checks into his sole bank account. From May 2014 to December 2018, Owner A made at least $561,667 in payments to Morrison through Company A.

Morrison failed to report to the IRS the payments made by Owner A to Comfort Consulting in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, or 2018. Morrison also failed to file federal income tax returns in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 in an attempt to conceal the payments from Owner A. Morrison spent the money he received from Owner A and Company A on personal expenses. Morrison avoided paying approximately $118,200 in taxes by failing to declare the payments from Owner A as income to the IRS.

An indictment is merely a charge; it does not constitute proof of guilt. Unless and until proven guilty in a court of law, the defendant is presumed innocent. Morrison faces a statutory maximum prison sentence of five years for each count of tax evasion and one year for each count of failure to file tax returns if convicted. Any sentence imposed by a federal district court judge will be based on the United States Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
