The Hennepin County Attorney's Office has charged a Minneapolis man with four tax-related felonies and four tax-related gross misdemeanors, the Minnesota Department of Revenue announced Monday.
A release states William Joseph Stewart faces four counts of willfully attempting to defeat a tax law by failing to pay income taxes and four counts of knowingly failing to pay individual income taxes. The first four counts are felonies.
According to the release, Stewart is accused of failing to file any individual or business tax returns from 2012-15.
It goes on to allege that while his personal and business bank accounts appeared to show significant income from his business, A OK Asphalt, he did not file returns or pay income taxes on that income.
It is alleged that he did file income tax returns for 2012 through 2015 in October 2016, but those late-filed returns reportedly indicated he owed over $40,000 in outstanding income taxes.
The release states the criminal complaint indicates he has not yet made any payments toward that tax liability.
