Max Suh of Memphis pled guilty to theft of property
Memphis – The Special Investigations Section of the Tennessee Department of Revenue conducted the investigation that led to Max Suh’s guilty plea to theft of property. This charge stemmed from his failure to remit sales tax collected from customers at Tobacco Max. Suh, 49, was sentenced to three years in the county jail. In lieu of the jail sentence, Suh was placed on three years of supervised probation.
The Honorable Judge Chris Craft ordered Suh to pay $30,000 in restitution to the Tennessee Department of Revenue before entering the plea. Suh was ordered to repay the remaining $80,756.90 to the department in monthly payments.
“The Department of Revenue has always been committed to making sure Tennessee’s tax laws and procedures are applied uniformly to ensure fairness,” said Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano. “We can never allow individuals engaged in fraudulent tax activity to have a competitive advantage over honest Tennesseans.”
