Anthony Tesvich, a former employee at Vinings-based Home Depot Inc., has been charged with tax evasion and conspiracy to commit wire fraud against the home improvement retailer.

Tesvich allegedly took millions of dollars in kickbacks from foreign vendors in exchange for making sure their products were featured in stores throughout the country. Even after leaving the store, Tesvich continued to give substantial cash payments—he called them “french fries” and “milkshakes”—to co-conspirator employees at the company. One cohort received a luxury SUV as a payment from Tesvich.

Unfortunately for Tesvich, fast money, like fast food, tends to catch up with one: His enormous take attracted the attention of the IRS. He is in arrears for more than $1.4 million for 2003–05 alone.
