MINNEAPOLIS - A nightclub bouncer has been found guilty by a federal jury of filing fraudulent tax forms for himself and several dozen other people
John Hunter Sr., 46, was found guilty of in a four-day trial of conspiracy to defraud the United States, false claims and aggravated identity theft, said U.S. Attorney Andy Luger Monday.
A sentencing date has not been set.
As proven at trial, Hunter falsified his tax returns for 2009 while working for Club Rage in Maplewood. He then also recruited others and filed fraudulent returns for several other dozen people in the spring of 2010.
He repeated a similar scheme in January 2012.
In all, the IRS investigation found, he filed at least 45 fake tax returns claiming more than $200,00 in tax refunds.
The case is the result of an investigation conducted by the Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS, with assistance from the Minnesota Department of Revenue.
