A staffing company operator in Ontario was fined almost C$1.3 million (US$1.2 million) and sentenced to four years in jail, the Canada Revenue Agency announced Tuesday. Deborah Dieckmann operated staffing companies but did not remit payroll and income tax deductions to the government, according to the agency. Approximately C$5.8 million was not remitted.
Dieckmann will have one year to pay her fine upon release from jail, or she will serve an additional five years in jail.
Dieckmann’s father, George Salmon, was also fined C$397,758 (US$373,499) and sentenced to two years in jail, according to the Canada Revenue Agency. Salmon owned a business called TPM Machining Group that knowingly used the services of Dieckmann’s companies to avoid remittance of payroll and income tax deductions, the agency reported.
Salmon was also given one year, upon his release from jail after serving his term, to pay the fine or he will serve an additional three years in jail.
