TSR Updatez: “Chrisley Knows Best” stars Todd and Julie Chrisley are off the hook in a $2 million tax evasion charge in Georgia.
The Georgia Department of Revenue agreed that Todd and Julie Chrisley, who had been accused of evading nearly $2 million in state taxes between 2008 and 2016, had overpaid the state in four of those years, according to E! News.
The department also determined that the Chrisley Knows Best stars owed nothing for four of those years and in the end, had a net liability of less than $77,000 in overdue taxes for just one year of incorrect filing.
“Julie and I knew all along that we had done nothing wrong and that when the facts all came out, we would be fine,” Todd said. “We’re just glad that the Department of Revenue was willing to keep an open mind and look at all the evidence.”
While things might be all good in Georgia for the couple, they’re not completely out of the woods when it comes to legal trouble.
Todd and Julie still face federal charges for allegedly evading federal taxes during that same time period. But it sounds like the Chrisleys aren’t too worried.
“We have maintained from day one that there has not been any tax evasion by our clients Todd and Julie Chrisley,” the couple’s attorney Bruce H. Morris said in a statement. “This settlement with the state is a big step in the direction of proving their innocence.”
Back in August, Todd and Julie plead not guilty after being indicted on multiple counts of conspiracy, bank fraud, wire fraud and tax evasion.
The Chrisleys have maintained their innocence in regards to the accusations against them and said that they have nothing to hide when it comes to their finances.
We’ll keep you posted on any updates in this case, Roommates.
