IRS Agent Says Manafort Left $16m Off Taxes

KELO Paul Manafort

An IRS agent says Paul Manafort didn’t report at least $16 million in income on his taxes.

Agent Michael Welch says that was the total the former Trump campaign chairman left off his tax returns between 2010 and 2014.

Welch is a 34-year IRS veteran and worked on more than 500 criminal investigations. He is testifying as an expert witness in Manafort’s financial fraud trial.

Welch also says Manafort should have reported multiple foreign bank accounts to the IRS in those years.

The testimony bolsters the prosecution’s tax-evasion case against Manafort. He is also charged with bank fraud.
