Co-owner of Cottage Grove boat, snowmobile dealership pleads guilty to defrauding state of $3.2 mill

A co-owner of 61 Marine and Sports in Cottage Grove admitted in court on Tuesday that he defrauded Minnesota of approximately $3.2 million in sales tax, penalties and interest.

Jeffrey S. McKenzie, 59, of Hastings, pleaded guilty in Washington County District Court to three felony counts of knowingly aiding in the preparation of tax returns that were fraudulent or false. He was charged in August.

61 Marine and Sports, which opened in August 1997, sells boats, boat motors, ATVs, snowmobiles and parts and accessories.

A preliminary investigation in August 2018 found that a sales tax audit had been initiated on the business by the Minnesota Department of Revenue, leading to a criminal investigation by the agency and the Washington County sheriff’s office.
