On January 11, 2017, a couple in Montana pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. by failing to file individual income tax returns since 1998. Between the years 2007 and 2011, Peggy DeYoung earned income through her ownership interest in two companies that own mobile home parks in Southern California. The DeYoungs also established a number of purported trusts and opened bank accounts in the names of said trusts using fabricated taxpayer ID numbers. Personal expenses were also paid from those accounts. The couple faces a statutory maximum sentence of five years in prison.
