Unpaid rebates focus of Pilot investigation

Claims of unpaid fuel rebates apparently led to Monday’s raid on the West Knoxville headquarters of Pilot Flying J as part of a federal criminal investigation, the company’s CEO said.
“It appears to be centered on a very insignificant number of customers and the application of rebates — that the rebates owed to the customers were not paid,” CEO Jimmy Haslam said at a short news conference Tuesday.
“We of course disagree with that. It does not involve any tax issues. To my knowledge, there was no evasion of state or federal taxes involved.”
