A Woodbury man faces multiple charges relating to tax fraud, according to the Minnesota Department of Revenue.

The Washington County Attorney's Office recently charged Steven Carl Jackson with six felony counts of filing false or fraudulent income tax returns and six felony counts of failing to pay income tax.

According to the complaint, Jackson filed false income tax returns from 2014 to 2019, by overstating his withholding amounts in order to reduce the amount of income tax he and his wife owed. The complaint also alleges that he failed to report taxable wages from a job in tax years 2018 and 2019. Department investigators determined Jackson owes more than $15,300 in income tax.

Each tax-related felony charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both.
