Scottsdale man is indicted for income tax fraud

PHOENIX – A federal grand jury in Phoenix has indicted a Scottsdale man
for income tax fraud.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona say 43-year-old Jon Nikolai Carlson
allegedly filed for almost $492,000 in false returns over a four-year span.

Carlson was arrested Friday on a four-count indictment.

Prosecutors say Carlson filed falsified tax returns from 2005 to 2008.

They say he filed for a $65,744 return in 2005, a $67,216 return in 2006, a
$355,418 return in 2007 and a 103,565 return in 2008.

Authorities say each conviction for filing false income tax returns carries a
maximum penalty of three years in prison and/or a $100,000 fine.

It was unclear Friday whether Carlson has legal representation yet for his
case.
