MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Prosecutors have charged a well-known Twin Cities restaurant owner with the same crimes he has been accused of in the past.
WCCO-TV first reported in 2012 that Thom Pham owed more than $164,000 to the Minnesota Department of Revenue since opening his first restaurant in 1999. At the time, he told us he was on a monthly payment plan to the government.
Now, Pham is in trouble for Thanh Do, his Thai restaurant in St. Louis Park. According to criminal charges, Pham underreported taxable sales by $118,000 from 2013 until 2016.
The 44-year-old is charged with 38 counts of tax fraud. He goes in front of a judge next month.
