Operators of a Garden City outfit called “Big Bucks Bingo” have been charged with tax fraud and conspiracy for allegedly claiming more of their take went to charity than really did. It matters because charitable bingo is only legal in Idaho if at least 20 percent of the gross revenues go to charity. If convicted, the “Big Bucks” operators could face up to three years in prison for tax fraud and five years for conspiracy.
