Even as a CS:GO star you need to properly report your taxes. Fnatic’s star Flusha was recently convicted of tax evasion.
Robin “flusha” Rönnquist usually is known for clicking heads as one of Counter-Strike’s best players. On November 18 he was convicted for tax evasion in Attunda district court as Swedish outlet Fragbite reported.
Flusha not only needs to pay a fine of aproximately $23,300 US-Dollar in addition to repaying the undeclared sum. He also has been sentenced to 120 hours of community work.
Back in 2015 flusha failed to properly declare roughly $120,000 US-Dollar in tournament winnings from Fnatic’s successes at ESL One Katowice and ESL One Cologne.

In Sweden prize money needs to be declared as income to the tax office. During court flusha said that he did not evade taxes on purpose, instead he simply did not know that tournament winnings needed to be taxed.
While the conviction must sting for flusha, it has no direct effect on Fnatic’s current run in FLASHPOINT Season 2.
