FRUIT HEIGHTS — A Fruit Heights man faces federal charges of tax fraud.
Jon T. McBride, 51, was indicted with three counts of attempted tax evasion, one count of filing a false tax return and one count of evasion of payment, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.
McBride is accused of using several bank accounts and nominee entities to hide some income he received from a property sale. A nominee entity is one that is requested or named to act for another.
He also allegedly failed to disclose nearly $110,000 he earned in 2005 and didn’t pay approximately $839,000 in back taxes from 1999 to 2002.
Each count McBride faces carries up to five years in federal prison, according to the press release.
He will be in court on April 26.
