The Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office and the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau charged 41-year old Log Horizon and MAOYU light novel author Mamare Touno (real name Daisuke Umezu) and his intellectual property holding company m2ladeJAM (pronounced "marmalade jam") with tax evasion and violation of the Corporate Tax Law on Monday.

Touno allegedly failed to file 120 million yen (around US$996,438) in royalties from the printed versions of his MAOYU and Log Horizon novels for his income tax report in a three-year period ending last year. According to the prosecutor's office, Touno owes the Japanese government 30 million yen (around US$249,114) in taxes.

When NHK reached out to Touno for comment, he said, "I've paid my taxes, but I can't comment."

Touno launched his Log Horizon light novel series in March 2011, and his MAOYU light novel series in May 2011. Log Horizon inspired two TV anime series. The first season premiered in October 2013, and the second season premiered last October. Yen Press announced last August that it will publish the light novels in North America.

MAOYU also inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in January 2013.

In 2002, Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro was arrested and convicted of violating child prostitution laws, including paying a 16-year-old girl ¥80,000 to have sex. As a result of the arrest, Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! was cancelled by Weekly Shōnen Jump.

I don't know about japan per se but in murrka, if all that happened was you got lazy and didn't file/pay, and you weren't actively trying to hide income or anything, then generally they're not going to imprison you, they just want their money plus late fees.

You mean they just come up with bullshit work arounds so they're technically not prostitution as the law describes it.

Probably not technically, but who knows how stressed he'll be by the whole thing. Ordinarily they wouldn't even just up and charge you, I mean there's usually months of them sending letters and collections and stuff (again, in murrka) before they start threatening legal action. So I'm wondering if he's just been exhausted by all the publicity and success and ignoring his mail for a year.
>>
>>123969295
Yes. I believe the courts generally interpret the law so that only vaginal sex counts as prostitution. Which is why some brothels specifically have rules against asking for the "real" thing.
>>
He should be charged with fun evasion for creating something so fucking shitty and boring.

It seems a he himself had a scare when a taxman visited him a few years ago, and it made him extra careful about taxes from then on. It seems there is difficulty for a creator to make the leap from creating a franchise as a hobby to running a buisness.

Actually that varies depending on who you are and what you own. In some cases, the gov't has seized and auctioned off property immediately and used that money to pay the fines. It is THEIR determination as to which will pay off the penalty the soonest. What you can do is get an injunction from the court authorized to hear such requests. If they are backlogged, then you fail. Unlike local criminal cases where the backlog doesn't matter if you start the process, with the IRS injunction, it is your responsibility to actually GET the injunction and not just start the process to stop your property from being sold to eager capitalists. There's a whole industry based upon buying distressed capital and distressed property. The problem is how much collusion all that money can create with IRS and judicial branch employees. You can imagine what happens if a clerk delays filing your papers due to loss or misplace or unknown oops.

As a general rule, you only go to prison for tax evasion if the government wants you in prison and can't convict you of an actual crime. For example, Al Capone. Otherwise, you just pay them a lot of money. Putting someone in prison costs the government money, while the point of enforcing tax is to get the government money. But pretty much any time the government sends someone to prison on tax charges, it's political. Even Conrad Black and Martha Stewart type shit.

The IRS got Al Capone when even the FBI couldn't get him.

Also, plenty of black celebrities have tried to run away from the IRS, even escaping to another country, but still got caught by the IRS in the end.

Celebrities have no mercy from the IRS.

I imagine an author's income comes from multiple sources based on how much there works have sold and licensing deals with anime studios and foreign distributors rather than a set contract with a firm for X amount so it's probably pretty easy to forget to declare one form of income.

>How do you even forget to pay taxes? Do the Japanese have super complex forms that include cows and rupees and number of blades of grass on your lawn?
ZUN said that it is what happens when someone who used to just break even playing a hobby, all of a sudden became successful due to a breakthrough hit. If you never had to pay taxes before because your old desk job pre-deduct your taxes and your hobby was not profitable, then once you quit your job and started doing your hobby full time, it is easy to forget that you would need to pay taxes now that you are your own boss.

You probably don't have to worry about tallying up and deducting your business expenses, as you're probably not going to itemize unless you have a primary residence mortgage and/or a lot of hospital bills. And I don't suppose you donate much to charity, either.

Just keep track of any money, "donations", etc. that you get and put that down on your 1099-MISC form. Reminder that sponsorship on Patreon IS income and not a gift.

Don't know about Niptax law, but in the States, if you substantially underreport just about the highest penalty they can slap you with is 40% of the amount by which you underreported. This rarely happens, as you pretty much have to either have failed to hide an illegal tax shelter or else have to engaged in a bona fide sham transaction before the the government will hit you with that.

So, if Jap law is like US law, the worst he would have to pay is 350k (the 250k he owes plus 100k penalty). People were saying that the top marginal rate for corporate tax in Nipland is 30%, so that would mean his company's income for the three year period would come to somewhere north of 833k.

So assuming he's got at least 350k of fairly liquid assets to pay the taxman out of his approximate 833k net worth, he shouldn't have any trouble.

Tax evasion is fun, if you take the right precautions. People don't realize that only around 1% of all income tax returns get audited. That number drops even lower if you know what patterns the IRS's computers look for in determining candidates for auditing.

As long as you keep your head down and are prepared to make a semi-plausible argument that your tax stance comes from a grey-ish area, you're practically free to play around with no consequences even if you get caught other than being ordered to pay the money that you were supposed to pay in the first place.

Remember, there's a statute of limitations for most of the underreporting you will end up doing.

>The IRS got Al Capone when even the FBI couldn't get him.
That's an unfair example to use now due to current technology (video,etc). The FBI failed waaaaay back then due to the lack of practical communications and long time delays as well as the lack of protective devices and surveillance gear/techniques. They have such technology now.

The FBI also failed because Al Capone or his allies got to all the human witnesses. First of all, the witnesses knew that after the trial was over, police protection would end and their family and friends' identity and locations would be known due to leaks in the government. Al Capone was known to go after witness family members and friends. Most possible witnesses thus refused to testify or pretenced memory loss or even destroyed their own records to prevent the gov't seizing them and forcing those people to be witnesses. Importantly, Government corruption existed and was widespread. Thus, your privacy data was bound to leak and you would be killed. So, there was hugely negative incentive to be a witness. This was also backed up by witnesses under police protection being killed successfully before or after other trials.

Back then, this left the IRS as the only agency left with witnesses (tax records) that could survive assassination attempts from organized crime.

Meerupo is a story about Ai-chan,a tsundere loli with the hots for her nii-chan Mamare. After Mamare gets a job to support them both, he starts getting letters from IT-chan, Internal Taxes Channel, and Ai-chan thinks its from a lover and throws them away.
They decide to run away from their towering debt and have to resort to doing oddjobs on the countryside for food and lodging, where they meet quirky characters along the way.
During many of their nights under the stars, sharing a sleeping bag, their relationship evolves into a beautifull love story between brother and sister (not blood related).

You forgot that the usa law also requires that illegally obtained income OR barter goods are taxable as income too. That is how they charge drug dealers with more crimes because the drug shipment value is taxed. That is how they get around needing a court case to prove all the money the dealer has is legit. The taxable value of the drug shipment generates so much tax that it means none of the money will never be returned to the dealer.

You can't file those deductions!!! That would be admissible guilt under RICO Act. Once RICO applies to you, the government can seize ALL your possessions, so at that point, any deductions don't matter because all you have is gone. You used your car as transportation during drug dealings? It is taken. You lived at your home while taking even one phone call there for drug dealing? That home and property is lost under RICO. So that is why you cannot apply for deductions for those illegally obtained earnings. They will be 100% taxed without deductions. You have to bite the bullet there. Admit no extra guilt.

Some states actually let you purchase "drug stamps" (pic related) that you can use to avoid any potential tax liability while not incurring any penal liability. I actually bought one once, as a joke. I had to do it at my state's capital building, in person, and I ended up being led to a private room with a telephone. After five or so minutes, someone called the phone, and they asked me some questions (but nothing that would lead to potential incrimination on my part). After about 30 minutes I was able to purchase the drug stamps in cash money. It was strange.

But anyways, some people have experimented with filing what they call "Fifth Amendment Tax Returns" to try and fix that problem. It's unknown how this will pan out in the future.

It's not favoritism if the bank get some dosh in return.
>>
>>123981824
No, if you think about it, it's actually a gain. Imagine this:

You are a company, and you sell 50 bonds worth 100 dollars at a 5% interest rate. Subsequently, the interest rate jumps to 8%. The person whom you sold the bond to will then want to get rid of the bonds, because this will let them free up their 5,000 to invest at the new rate. But nobody will buy them because they are fixed at the lower rate. So, you offer to buy them back at a discount, say 75 dollars/bond. You have effectively gained 1250 dollars in cash for doing nothing except buying back your debt at less than its face value. It only makes sense to tax you for that gain.

He will just defer collecting on it until you're back on your feet, and then he'll deny any tax offsets that you could possibly claim until you've paid back every last penny that you owe him. It could take years, or it could be until the rest of your (or your mother's) life.
