About Ellen F. Rosenblum
Oregon Attorney General John Kroger today announced a tax evasion prosecution.
Michael Troy Dyer of West Salem faces two counts of Oregon Personal Income Tax Evasion and two counts of Unlawful Manufacture and Delivery of Marijuana. Dyer is charged with failing to pay income taxes from 1998 to 2007.
All criminal defendants are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
"Complying with tax laws is not optional," said Attorney General Kroger. "When we catch people committing serious tax evasion, we will pursue criminal charges. Now more than ever, everyone has to pay their fair share of taxes."
Evidence in support of the charges against Dyer was discovered during a Department of Justice criminal investigation into a commercial marijuana growing operation in Polk County.
Attorney General Kroger said that the Department of Justice has several other potential tax evasion cases under investigation.
Attorney General John Kroger leads the Oregon Department of Justice. The Department's mission is to fight crime and fraud, protect the environment, improve child welfare, and defend the rights of all Oregonians.
