Business owner arrested for collecting, keeping sales taxes...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – A Jackson Parish business owner faces felony charges for allegedly failing to remit sales taxes to the state, the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) announced Thursday.

Miriam Robertson, of 134 Country Road in Jonesboro, is accused of keeping more than $100,000 in state sales taxes she collected on purchases at Deals & Discounts, a furniture store she operated in Jonesboro

Investigators say between 2009 and 2014, Robertson submitted sales tax returns to LDR that underreported the amount of sales tax she collected and pocketed the difference. Records show she failed to remit $105,155.20 owed to the state.

Robertson was arrested on Thursday, January 22 and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of Criminal Penalty for Failing to Account for State Tax Monies.  She is the 39th person arrested under a joint anti-fraud initiative of the Department of Revenue and the state Attorney General’s office.

New Orleans woman arrested for filing false tax returns to get illegal refunds...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – A New Orleans woman accused of filing false tax returns in her own name and in the names of unsuspecting strangers faces multiple felony charges for fraud.

Qwanda Lashay Dampeer, of 7520 Crestmont Road in New Orleans, is accused of receiving thousands of dollars in illegally obtained income tax refunds. She allegedly filed phony Louisiana individual income tax returns, with fake W-2 withholding forms, in her own name and in the names four other people, directing the refunds to her own bank accounts.

Owners of the businesses identified on the phony withholding forms told investigators that the people named on the returns did not work for them during those periods.

Dampeer is accused also of reporting personal income from businesses she claimed she owned, but investigators determined those businesses did not exist.

She allegedly received $4,515 in illegally obtained refunds. An additional $458 in fraudulent refunds was stopped by fraud detection methods at the Louisiana Department of Revenue before being issued.

The alleged fraud took place during the 2011, 2012 and 2013 tax years.

Dampeer was arrested on January 15, 2015, and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on seven felony counts including Computer Fraud, Theft, Attempted Theft and Injuring Public Records. She is the 38th person arrested under a joint anti-tax fraud initiative of the Louisiana Department of Revenue and the state Attorney General’s Office.

Tax fraud scheme involving prison inmates results in felony arrest...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – A New Orleans woman faces multiple felony charges for a tax fraud scheme that involved filing false state income tax returns in the names of unsuspecting people, including some prison inmates.

Thelma Jean Lee, of 5115 North Prieur Street in New Orleans, is accused of filing dozens of phony Louisiana individual income tax returns and receiving thousands of dollars in fraudulent tax refunds.

Investigators say Lee filed 38 false returns, including fake W-2 withholding forms, during the 2010 and 2011 tax years. The owners of the businesses named on those forms said the people identified as having filed the returns were not their employees during those periods.

And many of the people whose names were on the returns were in fact locked up in state and local prisons at the time.  

Banking records show that Lee directed $11,266 in illegally obtained state income tax refunds to accounts in her name as a result of the alleged fraud.

She was arrested on January 14, 2015, and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on 38 felony counts including Filing or Maintaining False Public Records, Identity Theft, and Illegal Transmission of Monetary Funds.

Thelma Jean Lee is the 37th person arrested under a joint anti-tax fraud initiative of the Louisiana Department of Revenue and the state Attorney General’s office.
