While employed at Superb Trucking LLC i witnessed Eric Asher, an employee and Dennis Nelson, company owner modify and submit to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation fraudulent 2290 forms. These forms are used by the IRS to collect Federal Hiway use Tax from trucking companies.
The funds collected are then used for interstate hiway maintenance. These forms are filled out with all the company information and the vehicle identification numbers of the trucks that the company wants to pay the tax on. $1.250 per truck.
After the form is filled out it is then taken to the local IRS office, in this case Eau Claire, Wi., along with a check for the appropriate fee. The IRS personnel stamp the form as paid and then draw a line through the list of VIN numbers. These forms are then taken back to the company office and faxed to the state's department of motor vehicles.
These forms are required to be on file at the state DMV to obtain truck registration and insurance. Eric Asher and Dennis Nelson modified the stamped forms and added more VIN numbers to them before faxing them to the WI Dept. of Transportation to make it apper that the tax was paid for all of the trucks on the forms, but in reality the tax was only paid on two or three trucks per form, adding several more before faxing them to WI DOT.
Not only did Superb TruckingLLC/Superb Logistics LLC not pay their fair share of tax, but should one of these trucks be involved in a crash, investigation will reveal that they had obtained insurance and registration with fraudulent forms. If there were any injuries i doubt that an insurance company would cover any expenses incurred by any victims.
