Chase Chrisley is accused of owing $ 16,000 in back tax.
The 23-year-old son of Todd Chrisley was, according to several reports, affected by a federal tax law by the IRS. The collateral accuses Chase of refusing to pay tax on his income due for the year 2014. The total unpaid tax debt is said to be $ 16,886.64.
The news comes when Todd Chrisley and his wife Julie were sued by a federal grand jury for tax evasion. Judicial documents obtained by ET on Tuesday show that Chrisley and his wife were charged with multiple counts of conspiracy, bank fraud, bank fraud and tax evasion. Their accountant, Peter Tarantino, has also been charged with tax-related offenses.
The Chrisleys lawyers, Bruce H. Morris and Stephen Friedberg, tell ET in a statement: “The charges in the indictment are based on complete untruths. The Chrisleys are innocent of all charges.”
On Monday, Chrisley went to Instagram to share his side of the story and claimed that he and his wife “have nothing to hide”.
“It all started in 2012 when we discovered that a trusted employee of ours had stolen a lot from us. I will not go into details, but it involved all sorts of really bad things, such as creating fake documents that forged our signatures, and threaten other employees with violence if they say something, “he wrote, claiming that the former employee had intercepted their home and then brought him to justice.
“To get revenge, he took some fake documents to the US attorney’s office and told them that we had committed all kinds of financial crimes, such as tax evasion and bank fraud,” Chrisley claimed. “That caught their attention, but once we had the chance to explain who he was and what he had done to us, they realized it was all nonsense and sent him off.”
“We have nothing to hide and nothing to be ashamed of,” Chrisley continued. “We not only know that we have done nothing wrong, but we have a lot of hard evidence and a lot of confirming witnesses that prove it.”
