A former Florida business owner was indicted for allegedly filing fraudulent individual and corporate tax returns in 2010 and 2011. The alleged tax fraud took place while he was a resident of Niceville and the owner of at least seven different businesses. The 62-year-old man is accused of underreporting both his corporate and personal income during those two years. He now lives in Laughlin, Nevada but will be required to return to Florida for the trial.
Before his Sept. 2 trial date in Pensacola, the accused man is legally barred from having any sort of contact with any person involved in his former businesses. The stipulation is a condition of his release from custody and includes both employees and customers of the man's former businesses. Some of the businesses involved in the alleged tax fraud include Haight Ashbury LLC, Woodstock Navarre and Woodstock Niceville.
