MTV’s “Jersey Shore” star Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino was indicted Wednesday on charges of filing false tax returns involving $8.9 million income along with his brother Marc.  The Situation was charged with two counts while Marc was charged with three counts of filing false tax returns for 2010 through 2012.  Sorrentino was also accused of failing to file a tax return for 2011.
The Government alleges that the pair claimed costly clothes and cars as business expenses and funneled company money into personal accounts.  Based upon recent similar cases, it looks like the two will likely see some prison time.  This shows that tax fraud is taken seriously and that the Government does prosecute people for filing false returns.
