OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A group of college students who boasted about their keg parties on a social networking site fought with state tax officials at a hearing over taxes the state says the group owes.
The group called Kegheadz was a loosely formed business by University of Central Oklahoma students in Edmond.
At a hearing before an administrative law judge the tax officials said they calculated the tax owed by the group based on claims like "Over a billion served" that were found on sites like MySpace.
Kegheadz co-founders Julius Baroi and Jordan Glover told the judge they only made about $1,700 from the party business and promoted it on Web sites by exaggerating its success.
The tax commission initially billed the group for $320,000 but reduced that to about $43,000.
Law Judge Kris Kasper indicated it will be several weeks before he rules on the case.
