Utah Jazz Assistant Coach Sidney Lowe Arrested for Tax Evasion

The Tax Man alleges that Sidney Lowe failed to pay his dues in North Carolina for three years, and the Utah Jazz assistant coach was booked on Monday morning. The team expects him to rejoin them today. Per the Deseret News: “The 53-year-old Lowe, North Carolina State’s head coach from 2006-11, had three misdemeanor counts filed against him by the North Carolina Department of Revenue for failing to file income taxes from 2009-11. Lowe’s arrest was confirmed by Capt. Jimmy Stevens of the Wake County Sheriff’s Office. Lowe was placed under a $10,000 bond and has a court appearance for March 19, according to WRALSportsFan.com. On Monday morning, Jazz spokeswoman Linda Luchetti said the organization was made aware of Lowe’s situation through media reports. Luchetti, the executive vice president of communications for the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, said the Jazz are ‘looking into it’ but had ‘no official response at this time.’ Later Monday, Jazz PR director Jonathan Rinehart said the organization does not plan to make an official statement. ‘It’s a personal matter,’ Rinehart said. [...] Lowe reportedly made a base salary of $210,000 per year at North Carolina State, but TV and radio commitments boosted that to $760,000 annually. Bonuses and endorsements could’ve pushed his salary to $900,000. A contract settlement after Lowe’s 2011 resignation was believed to be in the $900,000 range.”

    Ex-Grizzlie coach… always knew he was scumbag

    I’m going out on a limb when I guess nobody here makes anywhere close to $900,000 a year, AND we all pay our taxes. When I hear about owners crying poor and willing to blow up teams because of luxury taxes… while millionaires on their payroll are getting busted for tax evasion? You know it’s almost certain the Jazz are trading away Big Al Jefferson to shed several Mil any moment too. @Lameness.

    There is no official law anywhere that states you HAVE to pay your Federal Income Taxes.. It is a scam by the big boys at the federal reserve.
