Reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley were indicted on Tuesday by a grand jury on tax evasion charges by the Northern District of Georgia. The former employee then retaliated by bringing phony documents to the USA attorney's office and told prosecutors the Chrisleys had committed financial crimes, Chrisley wrote.

Accountant Peter Tarantino, 56, was charged in the indictment with conspiracy to defraud the United States and aiding the filing of a false tax return. A woman who answered the phone at his office outside Atlanta on Tuesday afternoon said he was with a client and would have no comment.

Chrisley Knows Best is now on hiatus midway through Season 7, which is expected to resume this fall. Much of the series emphasizes Todd Chrisley's obsessive yet comedic efforts to keep tabs on three of his kids, two of whom are in their 20s, and his mother.

"Chrisley Knows Best" has aired on the USA Network since 2014 for a total of seven seasons.

However, "Todd and Julie Chrisley allegedly did not timely file income tax returns for the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 tax years or timely pay federal income taxes for any of those years", according to prosecutors. Todd, 51, and Julie Chrisley, 46, also have a podcast called "Chrisley Confessions".

Acura Type S concept previews a sporty next-generation TLX
The Acura Type S Concept will make its public debut Friday at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering during Monterey Car Week. That earned kudos for its driving style, but was felt by some to be too visually restrained for the segment.

A representative for NBCUniversal, which owns United States of America, declined to comment.

Before the indictment was issued, Todd Chrisley took to Instagram to deny the claims, implying the charges are based on evidence presented to investigators by a disgruntled former employee. He said he was aware that he and his wife were going to be named in a federal indictment for tax evasion "and probably a bunch of other financial crimes as well".

He alleged this employee, whom he did not name, was stealing from the family, created false documents, forged their signatures and bugged their home.

"I'm telling you all this now because we have nothing to hide and have done nothing to be ashamed of", he said. Todd said on IG, "Not only do we know we've done nothing wrong, but we've got a ton of hard evidence and a bunch of corroborating witnesses that proves it". Chrisley said he and his wife have "nothing to hide". "BJay" Pak. said in a statement to ET. You have and always will be the glue that holds us all together.

"Instead, the Chrisleys and Tarantino allegedly took steps to obstruct IRS collection efforts, which included hiding income, lying to third parties about their tax returns, and - in Tarantino's case - lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation and IRS-CI Special Agents", said the US Attorney's Office. "That money was hidden from the IRS". In June 2017 alone, 7C's Productions received $300,000, and the Chrisleys spent thousands of dollars that month on personal purchases, it says.
