NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Today Edward Dwayne Cunningham, owner of Beds To Go, pled no contest to three counts of sales tax fraud, a violation of Tenn. Code Ann. Section 67-1-1440(g). The Tennessee Department of Revenue’s Special Investigations Section conducted the investigation leading to today’s plea.
“Tennessee’s tax structure depends on taxpayers voluntarily complying with the laws,” said Commissioner Loren L. Chumley. “Taxpayers who collect but intentionally do not remit sales tax breach the public trust. This case underscores our commitment to collecting all taxes due the state of Tennessee.”
