As you may already know, John McAfee, the antivirus software genius and former Libertarian presidential candidate, has been indicted for tax evasion. He was recently arrested in Spain and awaits trial and possible extradition to the US.
Allegedly, John McAfee failed to file his taxes for four years despite earning millions in income between 2014 and 2018 from promoting cryptocurrencies, consulting work, speaking engagements, and selling the rights to his life story for a documentary, according to the indictment filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Tennessee. The indictment alleges that John McAfee evaded taxes by having his income paid into bank accounts and cryptocurrency accounts in the names of others, while also using the names of others to conceal ownership of property and assets including a yacht.
