Derek Chauvin facing felony tax fraud charge Derek Chauvin facing felony tax fraud charge00:30

Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin — already facing charges in the death of George Floyd — has been charged with multiple tax-related felonies, along with his wife Kellie Chauvin, CBS Minnesota reports.

Washington County Attorney Pete Orput on Wednesday announced the nine counts of felony tax evasion charges against Derek and Kellie Chauvin.

According to the criminal complaint, investigators began looking into the Chauvins in June 2020 for not filing Minnesota individual income tax returns on time from 2016 to 2019, and for fraudulently filing tax returns from 2014 to 2019.

"When you fail to fulfill the basic obligation to file and pay taxes, you are taking money from the pockets of citizens of Minnesota," Orput said. "Our office has and will continue to file these charges when presented. Whether you are a prosecutor or police officer, or you are a doctor or a realtor, no one is above the law."

The complaint details, over the course of multiple years, that the Chauvins failed to file income tax returns and pay state income taxes; underreported and underpaid taxes on income from various employments each year; and failed to pay proper sales tax on a vehicle purchased in Minnesota.

The charges are the result of an investigation conducted by the Minnesota Department of Revenue and the Oakdale Police Department. If convicted, Derek and Kellie could each face a maximum sentence of 45 years in prison and/or have to pay a $90,000 fine, according to CBS Minnesota.

Kellie filed for divorce in May 2020, which is still pending.

Aside from that comment being a code violation, please show us exactly where in those 8 sentences does it say that Derek Chauvin was a Trump supporter?

Why is it a code violation? It is a personal opinion.

It's not illogical or a stretch to conclude that people who lie cheat and steal might sometimes be attracted to Donald Trump, who would then serve as a "role model".

Illogical?

The word is hateful as well as dishonest.

The hits keep on coming for this asshole.  Maybe he and his low IQ wife can get adjoining cells.

When it was reported that he had a home/condo in Florida I made the comment that because Florida has no state income tax he might have said he was a resident here thereby avoiding MN state tax. Also if he claimed residency in FL his property tax would be lower than if it was claimed as a second non-residence home...

Karma is a bitch.

Yes, he was certainly "confused".

Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with second-degree murder for the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 (   here ), is a registered Republican. Using the date of birth and address listed on the criminal complaint against Chauvin for Floyd’s death ( available here ), Reuters found that Chauvin was not registered to vote in Minnesota, according to the state’s voter registration search ( here ).

Reuters did find, however, that Chauvin is registered to vote in the state of Florida, where he owns another home, by entering his name and date of birth into Florida’s voter information lookup site ( here ). The site lists his address in Windemere, a town in Orange County, where two women were arrested May 29 “on criminal mischief charges after throwing paint on the front door of Derek Chauvin’s home”, according to the Miami Herald ( here ).

Search results on the Florida voter information lookup site list Chauvin’s party affiliation as the “Republican Party of Florida” and his voter status as “Active” ( here ).

So he claimed Florida as his state of residence even though he and his wife both lived and worked full time in Minneapolis.  No doubt he tried to register the new car in Florida also...

A shame he dragged her down with him.  She can't get divorced soon enough.  I wonder which home she will sell?

Perhaps the state of Florida will go back and look for the money he would owe as a non resident of Florida.
