Aiken man charged with tax evasion

An Aiken man was arrested Tuesday by South Carolina Department of Revenue investigators and charged with four counts of tax evasion.

Donald Nothdurf is accused of evading more than $17,000 in taxes owed to the state of South Carolina.

For tax years 2012 through 2015, Nothdurf filed fraudulent W-2 forms claiming no income on South Carolina income tax returns even though he earned approximately $312,365, according to a news release from the department.

If convicted, Nothdurf faces up to five years in prison and/or fines up to $10,000 per charge. He was being held Tuesday at the Aiken County Detention Center.
