Verdigre Man Sentenced for Tax Evasion

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced today that on August 31, 2018, United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr., sentenced Daniel Kinnison, age 63, of Verdigre, Nebraska, for his conviction for tax evasion. Kinnison was sentenced to eighteen months’ imprisonment, a three-year term of supervised release, and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $607,210 to the IRS.  During the years 2002 through 2005 the Defendant, a participant in multi-level marketing companies, evaded the payment of Federal Income Taxes totaling more than $607,000 by concealing and placing his assets including real estate and salaried income in other individuals’ names in order to defeat the IRS’s ability to collect on said taxes. Additionally, he falsely stated to the IRS that he had no income generating employment during the period 2009 to the Present.

Karl Stiften, Special Agent in Charge of IRS Criminal Investigations, said, “Today’s sentence is a reminder that there are substantial consequences for this type of criminal behavior.”

This case was investigated by the Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS.
