A well-known local real estate agent is expected to plead guilty to tax-related charges the next time his case is called in court.

David Norris of Re/Max wasn't in provincial court in St. John's this morning when his case was called.He was represented by his lawyer James Smyth.

Lawyers agreed to set the case over until July 8, at which time the pleas will likely be entered.

Norris, 51 — who has been a real estate agent for more than 30 years — faces more than a dozen charges that allege he evaded paying taxes in 2009 and 2010 and that he falsified HST claims — all totalling tens of thousands of dollars.
