Tennessee Man Tries to Outwit the IRS and Fails

Brian Leo Snow, a resident of Rogersville, TN, was indicted by a federal grand jury, charging him with obstruction of internal revenue laws, filing fraudulent multi-million dollar liens against government employees and filing false claims for tax refunds.

According to court documents, it’s alleged that Snow filed false tax returns in a period of at least 9 years, filed false UCC Financing Statements against government employees seeking to collect his back taxes, and a false tax lien release with the County Register of Deeds.

The indictment charges Snow with failing to file tax returns for almost 20 years and owes the IRS over $150,000 in back taxes.  He filed the false retaliatory liens worth millions of dollars against an IRS Revenue Officer, an Assistant United States Attorney and a federal judge. Snow also filed false claims with the IRS claiming over $144 million in refunds.

Snow could face a prison sentence of at least 20 years plus monetary penalties.
