FILM TAX: Witter On Trial
One of the people accused in the Iowa film tax credit scandal is scheduled to go to trial this week.
Thirty-eight-year-old Chad Witter worked as the primary accountant for a company owned by Dennis Brouse.
Witter is charged with five felonies, including two counts of first degree fraud and two counts of first degree theft.
In March a jury found Brouse guilty of fraudulent practice and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Brouse collected more than $9 million in Iowa tax credits while producing the show “Saddle Up with Dennis Brouse” as well as instructional DVD’s.
