Famed tax evader Doug Bruce finishes jail term

DENVER (AP) — One of Colorado’s best known anti-tax crusaders has been released from a Denver jail after serving time for tax evasion.

Douglas Bruce was released early because of good behavior as a trusty in the jail’s laundry. Bruce served 103 days of a 180-day sentence. The Denver Post reports Bruce served his time in a low-security dorm of 40 to 50 inmates (http://goo.gl/BHSzI).

He was sentenced in February after being convicted for evading state income taxes, filing a false return and failing to file tax returns between 2005 and 2010.

He still disputes his conviction, telling KCNC-TV in Denver (http://cbsloc.al/JTLT68 ) he did nothing wrong.

Bruce spearheaded the state’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. The 1992 voter-approved constitutional amendment places limits on taxing and spending by the state and local governments.
