Trey Hollingsworth

Indiana’s 9th (IN - 09)

Updated: October 30, 2016

Narrative

Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth has been caught running TV ads lying about Shelli Yoder to distract attention from Trey’s company’s history of trying to dodge Indiana taxes, and even worse, Trey is relying on his father’s money to run even more false ads. While Trey was living in Tennessee, Trey’s Indiana company raked in almost a million dollars of tax breaks and even fought to avoid paying its fair share in taxes, leaving Indiana taxpayers with the bill. Now he won’t release his tax returns. Is it because they could reveal that he avoids paying income tax by declaring his residence in Tennessee?
