STATUTE

      Any person required under this title to pay any estimated tax or

    authority thereof to make a return, keep any records, or supply any
    information, who willfully fails to pay such estimated tax or tax,
    make such return, keep such records, or supply such information, at
    the time or times required by law or regulations, shall, in
    addition to other penalties provided by law, be guilty of a
    misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more
    than $25,000 ($100,000 in the case of a corporation), or imprisoned
    not more than 1 year, or both, together with the costs of
    prosecution. In the case of any person with respect to whom there
    is a failure to pay any estimated tax, this section shall not apply

    the case of a willful violation of any provision of section 6050I,
    the first sentence of this section shall be applied by substituting
    "felony" for "misdemeanor" and "5 years" for "1 year".
