ASPEN, Colo. (CBS4)- A Colorado couple living near Aspen is accused of filing their taxes using their pets names.

According to an indictment obtained by CBS4, Mathew and Sandra Zuckerman are accused of using their dog and cat’s names to file their taxes. They then allegedly used the savings on a face lift and a cruise.

The Zuckermans face two counts of tax evasion over a 12 year period. The indictment states the couple owes the government more than $200,000.

At the Zuckerman’s home in Woody Creek near Aspen there were gas shut off notices stuck inside the front door.
