Ronald Weinland, 63, is a self-proclaimed doomsday prophet who was sure that the world was going to end on Sept. 30, 2008 and then again on May 27, 2012. Weinland was so sure in fact that he not only told all of his church members in Cincinnati, Ohio to prepare for the apocalypse, he stopped paying his taxes. After all what’s the point in paying taxes if the world is about to end.
As you have probably guessed the world did not end in 2008 or May 27, 2012 and now the Internal Revenue Service has worked with officials to convict Weinland over unpaid taxes.
Weinland was found guilty on June 13 over five counts of tax evasion. According to a grand jury indictment from 2005 through 2010 Weinland managed to skip out on $300,000 in owed taxes, funneling the money into a foreign bank account, lying on his tax forms and even writing off his own personal expenses as church expenses.
Public Announcement from the Goodfellas at J.S. Tax Corporation:
Don't listen to these con artist clowns like Weinland. Even during the apocalypse, the IRS will continue to come after you for taxes. I rather deal with death then the IRS during my last days on earth. Therefore, just pay your fair share!
