Flusha convicted of tax evasion over 2015 CS:GO prize winnings
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive star Robin 'flusha' Rönnquist has been convicted of tax evasion. According to local reports, the Fnatic star has been fined and sentenced to community service after he failed to declare more than $100,000 worth of prize money won in 2015.
According to Fragbite, flusha did not declare his 1.04 million Swedish Kroner income in 2015, which amounts to about $120,000. Prosecutors at the Attunda District Court on November 18 told the rifler that he should have realised that prize money counts as income.
2015 was arguably the best year in Flusha's CS:GO career. He and the rest of Fnatic went on to claim two Major titles at ESL One Katowice Major and ESL One Cologne, as well as countless other tournaments. As the best-rated player in Majors that year, Flusha was widely regarded as one of the best CS:GO players on the scene.
