Thief River Falls couple, owners of Harlan's Boats R Us, charged with felony tax crimes
THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn. — A Thief River Falls couple and owners of Harlan's Boats R Us have been charged with multiple tax crimes.
According to a release from the Minnesota Department of Revenue, the Ramsey County Attorney's Office charged both Harlan Scott Kirkeide and Nancy Marie Kirkeide with three felony counts of failing to file income tax returns and three felony counts of failing to pay income tax.
The Kirkeides allegedly failed to file state individual income tax returns and failed to pay income tax for the tax years of 2019 through 2021. The department reminded the couple various times of their obligation to file and pay, the release says.
Complaints say the Kirkeides earned enough income through Harlan's Boats R Us during those years that they were required to file income tax returns as well as pay income tax in Minnesota. The release says the Kirkeides owe more than $19,100 in income tax, penalties and interest.
Each felony charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
