@All, Tom Brown denied that he was arrested for tax evasion. There was a reason this thread was started.

Check this out:

$950k tax trial in Northland - Northern Advocate - Northern Advocate News

"Five Northlanders facing charges of failing to file tax returns covering almost $1 million claim the District Court has no jurisdiction to hear their case and they have already been cleared of wrongdoing by a Maori native council.

The trial gets underway today of Timothy Meredith, 45, Carol Karl, 50, Andrew Karl, 42, Thomas Brown, 27, and Timothy Craig, 35, who are jointly charged with three charges of knowingly failing to provide information on income tax under the Tax Administration Act and Crimes' Act.

Meredith, Carol Karl and Andrew Karl appeared in the Whangarei District Court yesterday and legal arguments meant their trial could not proceed until this morning.

Warrants are out for the arrest of Craig and Brown who failed to appear yesterday.

Carol Karl was initially charged with six counts but three counts were withdrawn by Crown prosecutor Kevin Patterson in court yesterday.

The alleged offences were committed between January 2011-July 2013. The total of unpaid tax is estimated to be about $950,000."

"All were released on bail to re-appear in court this morning. The trial is set down for two weeks."

Whole article is on that link above... they have Thomas Joseph Brown's age wrong in this article, but correct it in the later articles.

Thomas Joseph Brown started a very laughable hunger strike to protest: Hunger Strike against New Zealand Corruption - Timeline | Facebook



He was dragged from his home by the police and admits it on that Facebook page, which he has since taken down:

"I have been dragged from my home by the Police whilst ill. Can't make other people admins from phone. Limited time, thanks for support. Please make viral!!!!" - Thomas Joseph Brown

Consultants face tax charges - Northern Advocate - Northern Advocate News

Here is a picture of Thomas Joseph Brown right here in that article:



"The trial of Timothy Meredith, 45, Carol Karl, 50, Andrew Karl, 42, and Thomas Brown, 58, began before a jury of nine women and three men in Whangarei District Court yesterday."

"The four are jointly charged with three counts of knowingly failing to provide information on income tax under the Tax Administration Act and Crimes' Act. The alleged offences were committed between January 2011 and July 2013."

"Crown prosecutor Kevin Patterson described the four as "tax cheats" who committed tax fraud on the Inland Revenue Department by failing to file income tax and GST returns as required of them by law."

"Mr Patterson said Brown failed to pay $283,000 in income tax and $76,550 in GST."

(How much cash would he have to have pocketed to owe that kind of tax bill? Damn!)

""The whole thing was a sham designed to deliberately avoid being assessed and to avoid paying tax," Mr Patterson told the jury.

All except Brown elected to make a brief statement to the jury and said there had never been any intent to evade paying tax. The trial continues."
