A Taylorsville man who has "adamantly refused" to file tax returns and pay income taxes will spend 14 days in jail, a judge ordered Monday.
The 57-year-old man also will have to pay more than $26,000 in restitution, interest and fines. He was found guilty in December of tax evasion, a second-degree felony, and failure to file state income taxes, a third-degree felony.
"We rely on state income taxes to educate our children," Utah State Tax Commission spokesman Charlie Roberts said in a prepared statement Wednesday. "It's only right that everyone pays their fair share."
