IRS files criminal complaint against a CNMI hotel/casino

9:53 am on 2 May 2013

In the Northern Marianas, the Internal Revenue Service says the Tinian Dynasty Hotel & Casino was either under-reporting its reportable cash receipts or received large amounts of cash through other unidentified means

IRS Criminal Investigator, Todd Peterson, says the Currency Transaction Report filings by Tinian Dynasty, Bank of Guam and Bank of Saipan seems to indicate this.

Federal law requires a CTR to be filed with the IRS by financial institutions, including casinos, for any cash transaction over 10,000 US dollars.

Mr Peterson attached his declaration in support of a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Commonwealth against Tinian Dynasty, VIP services manager George Que, and casino manager Tim Blythe.
