Update on Castroneves Tax Evasion

Here’s an update on Helio Castroneves’ tax evasion case. Apparantly Helio is in the hole for more than $2.3 million now. And, according to Joann Levitt, the IRS agent and the Government’s last witness, the case hinges on whether Castroneves actually secretly owned the Panamanian shell corporation, Seven Promotions. According to Levitt he did, and the $2.3 million owed as a result of $5 million “earned” by Seven Promotions was money simply never reported on Castroneves’ tax returns. More news to come in the next few weeks as the case should be put in front of a jury sooner rather than later. Castroneves, in fact, will miss the IndyCar season opener April 5 in St. Petersburg, Florida because of the recent delay in the case proceedings.
