91-Year-Old Tax Dodger: Authorities ‘Can Take My Coffin’

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, (UPI) –  A 91-year-old woman convicted in Sweden of committing tax fraud on five occasions said authorities “can have my coffin when I’m gone.”

The Local.se reported the woman, whose name was given only as Ingrid, was convicted on five counts of tax fraud dating back to the 1960s and was spared jail due to her advanced age.

Ingrid was sentenced to probation and a large fine, which she said she does not have the money to pay and she does not have any valuable possessions for Swedish Enforcement Authorities to take.

“The house isn’t in my name, there is nothing they can take,” she said. “They can have my coffin when I’m gone.”

Ingrid, who authorities said owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes, said she never intentionally cheated on her taxes.

“I have worked like a dog my entire life and never purposely tricked any person or the state,” she said.
