Former USherbrooke professor fined $38K for tax fraud

Former Université de Sherbrooke professor Robert Day has been fined $38K after pleading guilty to tax fraud. According to an investigation conducted by Revenu Québec, Day claimed reimbursements between 2014 and 2019 from USherbrooke for research expenses greater than the amount he spent, reportedly by falsifying and fabricating invoices and proof of payment. The investigation found that Day did not declare the excess amounts in his tax returns, thereby contravening the Tax Administration Act. USherbrooke dismissed Day in 2021 after he was suspected of being involved in major financial fraud. TVA Nouvelles reports that he was consequently arrested by the Unité permanent anticorruption in September 2023.
