ATLANTA — Reality television stars Todd and Julie Chrisley have settled allegations that they failed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in income taxes to the state of Georgia.
A spokesman for the couple, Allan Mayer, announced Tuesday that the couple had reached an agreement with the Georgia Department of Revenue.
The agreement signed by the Chrisleys on Sept. 27 credits them with tax refunds for some tax years and says they owed nothing in others. According to the settlement, the Chrisleys agreed to pay a little under $150,000 to resolve the claims.
Georgia Department of Revenue spokesman William Gaston said the department was not allowed to comment on confidential taxpayer information.
The “Chrisley Knows Best” stars have pleaded not guilty to separate federal tax evasion charges.Todd Chrisley, 50, discussed the charges against him and his wife in a lengthy Instagram post in August.

“I’ve never talked about this publicly before, but there’s been a cloud hanging over Julie and me and our entire family for the past seven years. It all started back in 2012, when we discovered that a trusted employee of ours had been stealing from us big time,” he wrote.

Though he said he wouldn’t go into details, he claimed that the employee did “all kinds of really bad stuff like creating phony documents, forging our signatures, and threatening other employees with violence if they said anything… We even discovered that he illegally bugged our home.”
After firing and taking the employee to court, Chrisley says the employee took “phony documents” to the U.S. Attorney’s office and told them the family had committed the financial crimes in order to “get revenge.”
USA Network declined comment to USA TODAY on whether the indictment would impact their show.
