Ham Lake couple facing felony tax charges
St. Paul, Minn.– A Ham Lake couple faces felony tax charges in Anoka County, the Minnesota Department of Revenue announced today. William Peter McCann, 65, and Patricia Mary McCann, 63, both of 14101 Coral Sea St. N.E., allegedly filed false individual income tax returns from 2003 through 2005.
During a department investigation, it was discovered that from 2003 through 2005 the defendants allegedly received over $140,000 of taxable income that was not reported to the State of Minnesota.
According to the complaint, the McCanns owe the state at least $9,750 in income tax for those years. A full formal audit has not been completed.
William McCann allegedly admitted that he had been doing remodeling jobs since 2002 and had received $25 an hour, even though he is not a licensed contractor in Minnesota. He admitted to running a lawn sprinkler service for the past four years as well. The income he received from both of these jobs was not reported on the couple’s tax returns.
Patricia McCann allegedly acknowledged that she knew her husband was involved in remodeling and construction projects, and that the money was put into their checking accounts, but was not reported on their individual income tax returns. She also admitted to failing to report that she had received $225 per week for house cleaning services since April 2003.
Each felony count is punishable by a maximum sentence of five years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.
The Minnesota Department of Revenue is dedicated to enforcing tax laws, collecting no more and no less than taxpayers owe. The department takes progressively stricter measures against taxpayers who demonstrate that they will not voluntarily meet their obligations.

So! You telling me that you claim all? I'll bet your no different than anybody else in this tax burdened state.
I bet if you claim every cent you get you either work for the IRS or live in fear of uncle Sam everyday.
Life's to short, live hard, take chances.

lol, Good answer!
I agree with what you say but if you go one step deeper and I wish I could remember the amount, there is a big surplus of tax monies on the national and state level, ask the old governor the Body. you voted for him didn't you? lol
If the people running the state and county or nation for that matter were a bit more honest we wouldn't have to have the stuffings taxed out of us in the first place.
Check out what the senators and upper class clergyman get paid, and it's for the rest of their lives, big money and full benefits, who's paying that tab huh?
Question, did you get stuck with any extra city or stadium taxes because of the new twins home? That young man is one of the reasons taxes keep going up, boys and their toys.
Oh well, nobody's perfect! signed, Law Breaker...
