Prosecutors will also argue that Manafort fraudulently obtained millions more in bank loans, including during his time on the campaign.
Mr Manafort, who has been jailed for almost two months, wore a black suit and appeared fully engaged in his defence, whispering with his lawyers during jury selection and scribbling notes as the prosecution began its opening statement.
Manafort arrived at the courthouse Tuesday morning wearing a black suit, with his hair neatly parted.
The pool of jurors will face questions from both sides and US District Judge T.S. Ellis III as they try to weed out potential prejudice in what has become a highly publicised and politically divisive investigation.
None said they knew Manafort, his lawyers or their law firms.
He warned jurors that Gates could not be trusted and was the type of witness who would say anything he could to save himself from a lengthy prison sentence and a crippling financial penalty. Asonye said the evidence would show he lied to the Internal Revenue Service.
His lawyers are seeking to exclude evidence at trial that details Mr Manafort's political lobbying work in Ukraine, saying it would be "irrelevant, prejudicial and unnecessarily time-consuming".
Paul Manafort, shown here arriving for a court hearing in D.C. last month, is on trial in federal court in Alexandria. Manafort has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
At the center of all this will be another Trump campaign aide, Rick Gates, who spent years working for Manafort in Ukraine and is also accused of helping him falsify paperwork used to obtain the bank loans.
Mueller has submitted more than 500 pieces of evidence, including tax filings and mortgage statements, and pictures of Manafort's expensive watches and homes.
Manafort's work for the pro-Russian government in Ukraine plays a central role in the allegations against him, since prosecutors say he concealed income from that work from USA tax officials and allegedly laundered more than $18 million in proceeds.
The luxurious lifestyle was funded by Manafort's political consulting for the pro-Russian Ukrainian political party of Viktor Yanukovych, who was deposed as Ukraine's president in 2014. Manafort's wife, Kathleen, was sitting behind him in the courtroom.
Paul Manafortserved as President Trump's campaign chairman between June and August 2016, resigning amid questions over his lobbying overseas. National security lawyer Bradley Moss discusses the latest developments.
Prosecutors have also listed Rick Gates, Manafort's deputy on the Trump campaign and a longtime business associate, as one of the 35 potential witnesses they could call to testify during the trial.
A conviction would give momentum to Mr Mueller, who has indicted or secured guilty pleas from 32 people and three companies since the investigation started 14 months ago. An acquittal would support efforts by Trump and his allies to portray the probe as a "witch hunt". Trump tweeted early Tuesday.
On Monday, prosecutors said in court filings that they meant to prove Manafort earned more than $60 million lobbying for the former pro-Russia Ukrainian government and failed to report "a significant percentage" of that.
Paul Manafort is scheduled to go to trial on Tuesday in Alexandria, Virginia, on charges relating to money laundering stemming from Ukrainian political consulting.
