The South Carolina Department of Revenue says Christopher Breeden, 34, owes the state more than $7,800 in unpaid taxes.
Breeden was charged Thursday with 6 counts of attempt to evade income taxes, SCDOR said in a news release.
He did not file state tax returns for 2008 and 2009 and 2011 through 2014, SCDOR said.
Breeden allegedly told state officials that “for tax purposes, he was exempt with his employer” from paying taxes on the $276,579 he earned during the six years in question.
If convicted, he could end up paying the state a lot more. He could face up to five years in jail and/or a fine of up to $10,000 on each count.
Breeden was being held at the Alvin S Glenn Detention Center Thursday afternoon.
