White County Man Charged With Tax Evasion

A White County man faces possible jail time for a tax evasion charge.

Special agents with the State Department of Revenue arrested 55-year-old Gary Dewayne Goodwin at his home last week. A grand jury handed down indictments charging Goodwin with a single Class E felony count of tax evasion.

“The Department of Revenue promotes voluntary taxpayer compliance by educating taxpayers, aggressively pursuing criminal sanctions and demanding accountability when taxpayers engage in fraudulent activity,” Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said. “This indictment underscores the Department’s ongoing efforts to enforce Tennessee’s tax laws.”

If convicted, Goodwin could be sentenced to a maximum of two years in state prison and fined up to $3,000.

Department of Revenue is pursuing the criminal case in cooperation with District Attorney Bryant Dunaway’s office.
