The Beale Clan
Posted by Phoenix Woman on November 3, 2007
Robert Beale, the tax dodger who bilked us all of $5.6 million, has been caught:
Tax protester Robert Beale’s 14 months on the lam from federal authorities ended Thursday in the parking lot of an Office Depot in Orlando, Fla.
Beale, a former technology company head, had engaged in running battles with the IRS and the Minnesota Revenue Department, citing God, the U.S. Constitution and tyrannical political societies for his refusal to pay taxes. He became Minnesota’s most famous tax resister when he skipped bail on the eve of his tax evasion trial in August 2006.
In 2000, while at Comtrol, Beale changed his employment status from “employee” to “consultant” and billed the company under the name of a shell corporation, the government contends. The shell was a “pass-through” device that allowed Beale to collect his salary through 2004 without reporting it to the IRS, according to prosecutors.
Earlier this year, Comtrol’s president and chief operating officer, Lee Stagni, was sentenced to three years and seven months in prison for tax evasion and for aiding and abetting Beale.
Robert Beale is the father of Theodore “Ted” Beale, better known as right-wing nutjob “Vox Day”.
