A New Hampshire man has said that he will defend himself against capture on tax charges if necessary, according to U.S. marshals.The government said that they have no plan of escalating the situation, after a jury decided that Edward and Elaine Brown plotted to hide their income and avoid taxes on Elaine’s nearly $2 million income between 1996 and 2003. According to the jury, over the past decade, the couple also used more than $215,000 of postal money orders to pay for their hilltop compound and for Elaine Brown's dental offices.
