NORTHERN Rivers race caller Rodney Fuller, of Coffs Harbour, is facing 46 criminal charges relating to more than $200,000 worth of tax evasion.

Mr Fuller, who resigned from his position with Sky Racing in September, is being prosecuted by the Australian Tax Office and appeared in Coffs Harbour Local Court on Tuesday charged with:

  •  30 counts of obtain financial advantage by deception;
  •  Nine counts of producing false or misleading documents;
  •  Five counts of defrauding the Commonwealth; and,
  •  Two counts of attempting to obtain financial advantage by deception.

The charges, which vary in dollar value, are alleged to have occurred over many years, with one charge dated 1999.

It will be alleged Mr Fuller claimed false tax refunds when lodging tax returns.

Mr Fuller has not lodged a plea in relation to any of the matters.

The matter is up for mention in Coffs Harbour Local Court on October 30.

A spokesman for Tabcorp, Sky Racing's parent company, said Mr Fuller had been a race caller for Sky for more than 20 years and covered meetings in Grafton, Coffs Harbour, Taree and Lismore.

The spokesman said Mr Fuller would be replaced by a number of callers currently employed by Sky.

He refused to comment further because the matter was before the court.
