Man pleads not guilty to charges over false tax returns

LINCOLN, NE (AP) – A Kearney man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he filed false tax returns.

US District Court records say Thomas Hird entered the pleas last week to five counts of filing false returns for the tax years of 2012 through 2016. Prosecutors say he didn’t report more than $520,000 in income over those 5 years.

His next hearing is scheduled for June.
