Taxation – Federal Income Tax – Bankruptcy Discharge – Willful Nonpayment – Discretionary Spending (access required)

United States v. Clayton Where defendant knew he was required to pay his federal income taxes, knew he had not done so, and continued to make extravagant discretionary expenditures, the government has made out a prima facie case that defendant willfully attempted to evade his tax liability. If defendant willfully evaded paying his taxes, his tax debt was not discharged in his bankruptcy.
