Font Size:

DENVER — Anti-tax crusader and former Colorado state legislator Douglas Bruce was found guilty of tax evasion Wednesday for failing to pay income tax from 2005 through 2007.

Prosecutors say Bruce evaded his tax responsibilities by funneling his income through a non-profit that he created in 2001 called Active Citizens Together, and failing to report that income to the Department of Revenue.

He faces up to 6 years in prison and $500,000 in fines when he is sentenced on Feb. 13, 2012.
