Vestergaard and that income from Switzerland - has Julie Meyer been lying to the US taxman, the IRS

By Tom Winnifrith | Monday 21 May 2018


 


As we saw earlier, Julie Meyer has told the US taxman, the IRS, to who she owes vast sums, that her only source of income is - illegal - director loans from Ariadne in Malta. Unfortunately that is a lie. Because, thanks to Winnileaks, you can see below a letter from a Swiss company Vestergaard where Julie is a director detailing her pay in 2017. Check its website and you'll see she is still a director. Ooops, I bet Julie hopes the IRS don't find out about that. Sadly for the devout Christian...

The officer in charge of Julie's case at the IRS was passed the letter below two weeks ago. I am sure that the IRS will handle Ms Meyer's untruthful statements about her income in an appropriate fashion.  My reading on the US penal code Title 26 USC 7206 (i) is that telling the IRS a porky is serious:

Willfully makes and subscribes any return, statement, or other document, which contains or is verified by a written declaration that is made under the penalties of perjury, and which he does not believe to be true and correct as to every material matter; shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof;

  • Shall be imprisoned not more than 3 years
  • Or fined not more than $250,000 for individuals ($500,000 for corporations)
  • Or both, together with cost of prosecutiion
Well it is not my call, I shall leave that to Julie and the IRS to sort out, I'm just glad that the IRS is now fully briefed.
