“Most businesses in Tennessee remit the tax dollars they collect from customers,” Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said. “This guilty plea should serve as a warning to those that believe they can get away with tax fraud. Our department remains committed to prosecuting tax evaders to ensure a level playing for all businesses.”

The department pursued this criminal case in cooperation with District Attorney Ray Crouch’s office. Citizens who suspect violations of Tennessee’s revenue laws should call the toll-free tax fraud hot line at 800.FRAUDTX (372.8389).
