Chrisley’s might not know best after all. Todd and Julie are in big trouble.
Todd Chrisley and his wife, Julie Chrisley, are facing charges of tax evasion and fraud. According to Page Six, the married couple has been lying and providing false information regarding their financial standings for years. Ultimately Chrisley’s frauding Uncle Sam, could result in jail time.
It was on Tuesday that they received a 12 count federal indictment. If found guilty, they could face up to 30 years in prison. Georgia’s Northern District filed the charges. Their accountant, Peter Tarantino, is in trouble too.
US attorney Byung J. Pak released a statement explaining the charges.
“Todd and Julie Chrisley are charged not only with defrauding a number of banks by fraudulently obtaining millions of dollars in loans, but also with allegedly cheating taxpayers by actively evading paying federal taxes on the money they earned.”
He adds that there is no running away from the law.
“Celebrities face the same justice that everyone does. These are serious federal charges and they will have their day in court.”
But Pak will have to prove it first. Todd Chrisley is standing by his innocence and claims he and his wife are the victims in a setup.
Todd says that someone he used to know is trying to destroy his family and their reputation.
“He illegally bugged our home. Needless to say, we fired the guy and took him to court — and that’s when the real trouble started. To get revenge, he took a bunch of his phony documents to the U.S. Attorney’s office and told them we had committed all kinds of financial crimes, like tax evasion and bank fraud. That got their attention all right, but once we had a chance to explain who he was and what he’d done to us, they realized it was all a bunch of nonsense and they sent him on his way.”
The Chrisley family has been dealing with the issue of tax evasion since 2017. They’ve also been dealing with bankruptcy. Todd filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2012.
Guilty or not…prosecutors are on their trail, and won’t rest until they get the truth out.
