    A 62-year-old Utahn was convicted on 13 felony counts of tax evasion on Tuesday, according to a press release.

    Dennis Kay Iverson of West Valley City was found guilty of seven second-degree felonies and sex third-degree felonies by an eight person jury.

    He's accused of evading state income taxes, failing to file tax returns and a patter of unlawful activity.

    Iverson will be sentenced on April 29.

    The Utah State Tax Commission investigators testified that Iverson failed to file income taxes in 1994.

    The 62-year-old claimed he certified promissory notes to pay balances and that "only silver and gold coins are considered lawful money," according to a press release.

    The Tax Commission said Iverson sent documents that said, "the government cannot deal with natural persons and can only deal with fictitious corporate entities."
