WALKER -- Judge David Harrington July 19 dismissed the case against one person in Cass County District Court and issued a stay of adjudication for the other in the cases against a Walker couple accused of using a false out-of-state address to avoid paying higher Minnesota taxes.
Margaret Jean Reinert, 61, received a dismissal of the gross misdemeanor intent to escape taxes charges. Robert George Reinert, 64, entered a guilty plea to the same charge, without admission of guilt and received a stay of adjudication.
He was ordered to pay $620.75 cost of prosecution.
Charges against the couple stemmed from a Minnesota State Patrol investigation into two Sioux Falls, S.D., businesses which provided a mailing address designed to provide a "home address" for people who travel in motor homes.
The State Patrol investigation showed more than 1,000 people who claimed to live at the two forwarding business addresses in Sioux Falls.
The Reinerts were charged when investigation showed they had lived at their Walker address since 1994, didn't own, rent or lease property in South Dakota, but had used a Sioux Falls forwarding address to obtain driver's and vehicle licenses in that state rather than Minnesota.
