LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A Lincoln man accused of filing false federal tax returns says he’s a victim of politics.

Court records say a grand jury Tuesday indicted 62-year-old David Tarrence on four counts of filing a false tax return. A court document says Tarrence under-reported income from his Local Movers moving company for 2011 through 2014.

Tarrence said Friday that he never intended to under-report the income and has cooperated with the Internal Revenue Service. He blames government backlash for the prosecution, saying officials are getting even for his defiance in a Lincoln case.

Last month the city of Lincoln dropped its legal effort to recover lawsuit settlement money paid to Tarrence and Tamara Geis, who said police wrongly seized $224,000 in cash and coins from their home. The city lawsuit alleged Tarrence violated a confidentiality agreement.
