Tax protester arrested near Truckee

TRUCKEE (AP) ” Authorities say a tax-protesting fugitive has been arrested near Truckee.

U.S. marshals say 43-year-old Tracy Corona was booked Thursday into the Washoe County Jail in Reno, Nev., to await her return to San Diego, where she and her husband, Richard, were convicted of federal income tax evasion in 2007.

Both were sentenced to 30 months in federal prison and allowed to remain free on bond pending an appeal of their convictions.

Marshals say the couple belonged to a tax protest group that maintains they are nonresident aliens and exempt from paying a federal income tax.
