(Update: We have a winner!)
Our first tax trivia question is:
On this day in 1929, gunmen in Chicago wearing stolen police uniforms murdered seven members of a rival crime organization run by Bugs Moran. The murders would come to be known as the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. The boss of those gunmen was suspected of a number of crimes, including murder, weapons charges and bootlegging but efforts to make any of the serious charges stick were unsuccessful. In 1931, he was finally brought down on federal income tax charges and subsequently sentenced to 11 years imprisonment, which was at the time the longest tax evasion sentence ever given.
Name that crime boss.
