A man convicted of tax evasion charges for not paying income taxes for more than a decade has barricaded himself, along with armed supporters, in his home in Plainfield, N.H.
Ed Brown said he won’t surrender.
“Live free or die,” he told the Associated Press in a telephone interview, referring to New Hampshire’s motto. “What else can I say?”
Ed Brown’s wife, Elaine, a dentist who earned most of the couple’s income, has been in Massachusetts.
Although the government says the couple owes $625,000 in taxes, the Browns say they are not required to pay federal income tax. They stopped paying income taxes in 1996 and stopped filing returns in 1998.
