As a U.S. Treasury Agent and CPA for over 25 years, Gary Patterson spent his career conducting criminal tax fraud investigations and statistical data analysis. Patterson’s most notable investigation involved the criminal prosecution of Simplified Employment Services, at the time, the fourth largest Employee Leasing and payroll processing corporation in the United States. In what the Detroit Free Press hailed as “one of the largest tax frauds in U.S. history,” four executives were convicted of failing to pay the IRS over $51 million in payroll taxes. In July 2008, the last of those executives, the company’s attorney, was convicted in U.S. District Court.
