Taxes promote creativity (otherwise known as “cheating”)

William Meyers, 66, of Cottage Grove, Oregon, took the time to file more than 70 fake excise tax returns. He’ll now have 366 days in prison (and three years of supervised release, and 100 hours of community service) to mull over the consequences.

Meyers was sentenced in U.S. District Court, and ordered to pay more than $873,000 in restitution, for filing the false returns.

Oh, he was also operating an illegal still. Busy guy. You can find the whole story here, compliments of The Oregonian.
