Anti-tax activist Bill Sizemore and his wife were indicted for three counts each of personal tax evasion.

Sizemore is no stranger to trouble with the law; in 2002, a judge said organizations run by Sizemore had participated in racketeering activities. The latest charges come at a critical time for the Republican activist, who recently announced his plan to run for governor.

In an interview Monday, Sizemore said he and his wife didn’t file returns but paid about $50,000 in estimated taxes in 2006 and 2007 and nothing in 2008.

“There was no intent to evade taxes,” he said. “You aren’t trying to evade taxes if you pay estimated taxes.”
