The owner of a restaurant in Shakopee has been charged with 58 tax crimes after she allegedly underreported sales and filed fraudulent returns over a period of several years.

Juansheng Lin, of Savage, is the owner of Tokyo Sushi in Shakopee, which she became the sole owner of in 2016.

Charges filed in Ramsey County following an investigation by the Minnesota Department of Revenue allege that Lin underreported the restaurants sales – thus reducing its tax liability – for "multiple months" between April 2015 and November 2019.

In doing so, the restaurant avoided paying more than $18,000 in sales tax and interest, which in turn impacted Lin's individual income tax filing between 2015 and 2019, so she now owes almost $20,000 in income tax and interest.

In total, she has been charged with 53 felony counts of filing false or fraudulent sales tax returns, and five counts of filing false income tax returns.
