Knox County man arrested for tax evasion

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A Knox County man has been arrested for tax evasion following an investigation by the Tennessee Department of Revenue’s Special Investigations Section.

Tyler Ray Love was charged with four counts of tax evasion, one count of filing a false report and one count of soliciting a false report.

Investigators say they found false and fraudulent information at the Knox County Clerk’s Office regarding Love’s registration of a boat and three vehicles.

“The Department of Revenue encourages voluntary taxpayer compliance by educating taxpayers, aggressively pursuing criminal penalties, and demanding accountability when taxpayers engage in fraudulent activity,” Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said. “These indictments underscore the Department’s continued efforts to enforce Tennessee tax laws.”

The Tennessee Department of Revenue is pursuing this case in cooperation with District Attorney Charme Allen’s office.

Bail for Love was set at $5,000. If convicted, he could be sentenced to a maximum of two years in the state penitentiary and fined up to $3,000 for each count of tax evasion.
