WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A southeast Kansas man is accused of falsely claiming more than $3.8 million in federal tax refunds.

An indictment unsealed Wednesday in U.S. District Court charges Jerold D. Fisher, of Arma, with two counts of filing false claims. The indictment was initially returned in May.

Prosecutors allege Fisher filed fictitious tax forms claiming an alfalfa farm in Crawford County paid him wages of more than $8.8 million between 2006 and 2009 and withheld nearly $4 million in taxes for those years.

The indictment alleges Fisher filed for refunds of nearly $169,000 for 2008 and nearly $3.7 million for 2009. It's unclear if any claims were paid.

No working phone number could be located for Fisher and court records do not show an attorney.
