A Spring City man faces forgery and tax evasion charges.

The Tennessee's Department of Revenue’s Special Investigations Division says agents arrested 30-year-old Daniel Allen Arnold at his place of employment.

On Monday, the Rhea County Grand Jury indicted Arnold on six felony counts of tax evasion and two counts of forgery. The indictments claim Arnold evaded taxes due to the state by fraudulently registering four vehicles and two boats with the Rhea County Clerk’s Office.

“The Department of Revenue promotes voluntary taxpayer compliance by educating taxpayers, aggressively pursuing criminal sanctions and demanding accountability when taxpayers engage in fraudulent activity," said Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano. "This indictment underscores the department's ongoing efforts to enforce Tennessee's tax laws."

If convicted, Arnold could be sentenced to a maximum of two years in the state penitentiary and fined up to $3,000 for each count of tax evasion and forgery. He had a bond set at $30,000.

The Department of Revenue says it is pursuing this criminal case in cooperation with District Attorney Mike Taylor’s office.
