Keith Tucker, the former chief executive officer of Waddell & Reed who has been charged with evading $1.2 million in Kansas City taxes, testified that was never his primary residence, The Kansas City Star reports.

The city, however, maintains that was his residence, as Tucker headed Waddell & Reed, headquartered in Kansas City, between 1999 and 2003 and owned a mansion there.
