The release alleges the two intentionally used sales suppression software on their point of sale system to remove thousands of line items from sales receipts in an effort to underreport their monthly sales and underpay sales tax from March 2014 to June 2017.
According to the release, they are accused of depriving the state of nearly $43,000 in sales tax revenue.
