It works its magic by leaving many, many things out. Among other things it leaves out that Kent's original conviction was not just for structuring or that Kent Hovind has relied on tax protester arguments and not filed individually for decades. Like most tax protesters he was not criminally charged with tax evasion. Not being charged with tax evasion does not constitute being conventionally tax compliant. Hovind has a civil liability of over $3,000,000 that I don't think they have even tried to start collecting. I discuss some of this in Has Kent Hovind Broken Any Laws.
The Coach actually alludes to the connection between Hovind's tax resisting as structuring if you really pay attention.
Finally the lis pendens was not an appeal. It was a filing at the county court house that had the effect in Hovind's words of being dog crap that it would be hard for the government to scrape off its shoe. Hovind's appeal of his criminal conviction which led to the forfeiture had already been turned down.
