IRS says Rapid City businesswoman owes $1.3M

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service has ordered the top administrator of Pioneer Credit Counseling in Rapid City to pay more than $1.3 million in taxes and penalties.

Laca Ossenfort disputes the IRS claim and says it is "arbitrary, excessive, erroneous and unsubstantiated."

The dispute centers around the sale of a corporation called Savoy that Ossenfort helped form. Savoy for a time administered Pioneer's debt-management plan program, and Pioneer eventually bought the company.

The case is set for trial beginning Sept. 11 in U.S. Tax Court in Washington, D.C.
