A Florida man pleaded guilty to filing a false tax return.

According to court records, Steven Brickner, of Tampa, Florida, raised money from investors allegedly for a marijuana growing and distribution enterprise.

Brickner failed to report to his tax preparer approximately $1.05 million of income that he had earned during that tax year.

The source of that income was the investment activity that he operated during 2017.

Brickner used a significant portion of that income to purchase high-end vehicles for his own use and for other purposes and activities that were not business-related.
