DC and Maryland Residents in Scheme to File Fraudulent Tax Returns and Obstruct the IRS


The indictment charges Johnny and Maria Moore, from the District of Columbia, along with Charese Johnson, aka Charese Adesalu, from Aberdeen, Maryland, with conspiring to defraud the United States in an effort to obtain fraudulent  refunds from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  The indictment also charges the Moores with aiding and assisting in the preparation of false trust tax returns (Forms 1041), and filing their own false amended personal income tax returns (Forms 1040X) with the IRS.  Additionally, Johnson is charged with aiding and assisting the Moores in preparing their false Forms 1040X. 
To further the scheme, the Moores, together with Johnson and another co-conspirator, allegedly prepared and filed tax returns that claimed either false withholdings or false credits.  Based on those alleged falsities, they requested significant refunds to which they were not entitled.  The Moores allegedly received a refund of over $500,000 for one trust tax return filed for the 2012 tax year.  As charged in the indictment, when the IRS sought to recoup that refund, Johnson conspired with the Moores and others to obstruct the IRS collection efforts.
If convicted, the defendants each face a maximum sentence of 5 years for the conspiracy charge, and 3 years for each of the false return charges.  The defendants also face substantial monetary penalties, supervised release, and restitution.
Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Zuckerman commended special agents of Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation, who investigated this case, and Trial Attorneys Abigail Burger Chingos and Jeffrey McLellan of the Tax Division, who are prosecuting this case.
An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed. The defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Employers Must File to Prevent Delays in Employees' Tax Refunds




The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance reminded employers to accurately file their withholding taxes ahead of the January 31 deadline. This will help ensure that any refunds owed to their employees won’t be delayed.

Employers must remit the personal income taxes withheld from their employees’ wages, salaries, bonuses, commissions, and other similar income by filing a completed Form NYS-45, Quarterly Combined Withholding, Wage Reporting, and Unemployment Insurance Return, by the end of the month.

“Employees shouldn’t be deprived of receiving the tax refunds they’re due simply because their employer neglects to file an accurate and timely withholding tax return,” said Acting Commissioner Nonie Manion. “To help employers meet this obligation, we’re sharing the most common filing mistakes we see on Form NYS-45.”

Filing deadlines and common errors
For the 4th quarter return, due January 31, businesses must report annual wage and withholding information.
Employers should avoid these common errors to prevent a delay in refunds owed to their employees:
  • Reporting an incorrect federal employer identification number (EIN). Be sure to report the correct employer/payer EIN. If any numbers are transposed or incorrect, the return information may not be posted to the appropriate account.
  • Failing to report all employees. Include in the annual filing every employee during the year—no matter the duration of their employment or the quarter in which they were employed.
  • Reporting 4th quarter wages only. Report the annual total federal gross wages subject to withholding tax, which include wages, salaries, bonuses, commissions, and other similar income. This amount is for the full calendar year, not just the 4th quarter.
  • Neglecting to report withholding for all jurisdictions. Report the total New York State, New York City, and Yonkers tax withheld (when applicable).
  • Reporting an incorrect total for the annual tax withheld. Verify that the total tax withheld reported on both Forms NYS-1 and NYS-45 for all four quarters reconciles with the grand total for New York State, New York City, and Yonkers tax withheld (when applicable).
Penalties for late filing or failure to file

Employers who fail to file a completed Form NYS-45 by the deadline face financial penalties of up to $10,000. They also risk delaying any tax refunds owed to their employees. That’s because the Tax Department will not issue the refunds until it verifies reported withholding amounts.

Justice Department Sues to Shut Down Promoters of Conservation Easement Tax Scheme Operating out of Georgia


The United States filed a complaint seeking an order stopping Nancy Zak, Claud Clark III, EcoVest Capital Inc., Alan N. Solon, Robert M. McCullough, and Ralph R. Teal, Jr., from organizing, promoting, or selling an allegedly abusive conservation easement syndication tax scheme, the Justice Department announced today.
According to the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, the defendants’ scheme revolves around donations of conservation easements and corresponding tax benefits from those donations. Defendants also allegedly rely on grossly overvalued appraisals as part of their scheme.
“The Department of Justice is working with our partners in the Internal Revenue Service to shut down fraudulent conservation easement shelters, which in this case were based on willfully false valuations,” said Richard E. Zuckerman, the Tax Division’s Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General. “Individuals investing in these schemes with benefits that seem too good to be true should ensure they are paying their proper federal income tax liability.”
 “When it comes to aggressive transactions marketed by unscrupulous advisors, we will take every enforcement option available, including civil and criminal penalties,” said Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Charles P. Rettig. “Cheating on your taxes will not be tolerated.”
Under the proper circumstances, the Internal Revenue Code allows a taxpayer to take a charitable donation deduction equivalent to the fair market value of a conservation easement, but only if certain requirements with respect to the donation of an interest in property for conservation purposes are satisfied. This deduction is referred to as the “qualified conservation contribution.”
The defendants allegedly organize, promote, and sell ownership interests in limited liability entities, referred to in the complaint as “conservation easement syndicates.” According to the complaint, at the time defendants organize, promote, and sell ownership interests in a conservation easement syndicate, the syndicate plans to donate a conservation easement on land it owns, and then claim a corresponding tax deduction for the “qualified conservation contribution.”
However, these syndicates lack economic substance and are shams. They only serve as a conduit to transfer overvalued and otherwise improper federal tax deductions to customers, according to the government’s complaint. Additionally, the complaint alleges the conservation easements promoted by the defendants do not meet the requirements for a “qualified conservation contribution” under the Internal Revenue Code.
According to the complaint, defendants knew, or had reason to know, that the statements they made to customers regarding the tax benefits were false or fraudulent. In this regard, the complaint alleges that defendants knew the syndicates that they promoted planned to donate a conservation easement but otherwise did not plan to engage in any ongoing business activity. The complaint also alleges that the only return on investment a customer could anticipate from “investing” in a syndicate was the tax benefit from the planned conservation easement donation, which was many times larger than the purported investment. The complaint further alleges that the defendants made or furnished gross valuation overstatements about the valuation of conservation easements and the corresponding tax deductions, or caused others to do so.
The suit alleges that defendants have organized, promoted, and sold at least 96 conservation easement syndicates resulting in the syndicates reporting over $2.0 billion of tax deductions from overvalued and improper “qualified conservation contributions,” and have passed those tax deductions through to the thousands of customers of defendants’ scheme, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars of tax harm.
On December 23, 2016, the IRS issued Notice 2017-10, announcing that certain syndicated conservation easement transactions are listed transactions if entered into on or after January 1, 2010. Notice 2017-10 applies to those prospective investors who receive oral or written promotional materials offering the possibility of a charitable donation deduction of at least 2.5 times their investment. A typical transaction covered by Notice 2017-10 involves the advertised investment in a pass-through entity that owns real property or acquires real property for the purpose of encumbering the property with a conservation easement.

Ocean County Attorney Charged with Tax Evasion, Filing False Tax Returns, Failing to Pay Over Payroll Taxes & Making False Statements on Loan Application



TRENTON, N.J. – A federal grand jury today indicted a partner at an Ocean County law firm for evasion of taxes totaling more than $1 million; filing false income tax returns; failing to pay over payroll taxes to the IRS; and making false statements on a bank loan application, First Assistant U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig announced.
George Gilmore, 69, of Toms River, New Jersey, was charged in a six-count indictment with one count of income tax evasion for calendar years 2013, 2014, and 2015; two counts of filing false tax returns for calendar years 2013 and 2014; failing to collect, account for, and pay over payroll taxes for two quarters in 2016, and making false statements on a 2015 loan application submitted to Ocean First Bank N.A.
According to documents filed in this case:
Gilmore worked as an equity partner and shareholder at Gilmore & Monahan P.A., a law firm in Toms River, where he exercised primary control over the firm’s financial affairs. Gilmore filed on behalf of himself and his spouse federal income tax returns declaring that he owed $493,526 for calendar year 2013, $321,470 for 2014, and $311,287 for 2015. Despite admitting that he owed taxes for each of these years, Gilmore made no estimated tax payments and failed to pay the federal individual income taxes that he owed. Rather, between January 2014 and December 2016, Gilmore spent more than $2.5 million on personal expenses, including substantial home remodeling costs, vacations, and the acquisition of antiques, artwork, and collectibles. By Dec. 31, 2016, based on the tax due and owing that Gilmore reported on the returns, he owed the IRS $1,520,329 in taxes, penalties, and interest. 
To evade and defeat the payment of his taxes Gilmore concealed information from the IRS and falsely classified income, made false and misleading statements to IRS personnel, and filed false tax returns that materially understated the true amount of income that he received from the law firm:
·      From January 2014 to December 2016, Gilmore used the law firm’s bank accounts to pay more than $2 million worth of personal expenses, including obtaining checks to cash and cash advances on a corporate credit card. Gilmore falsely classified payments as “shareholder loans” instead of income to him.
·      On Oct. 16, 2014, Gilmore sent the IRS a $493,526 check as payment for his 2013 taxes despite having no more than $2,500 in his personal bank account at the time. Gilmore’s check bounced and he never resubmitted payment in lieu of the bounced check. From November 2014, when he was notified by the IRS concerning the bounced check, to the end of December 2014, Gilmore spent more than $80,000 toward the construction of his home and to purchase artwork, antiques, and collectibles and more than $25,000 in mortgages and related expenses for five real estate properties that he owed.
·      From November 2014 to October 2015, Gilmore falsely represented to the IRS collections officer that he would make partial payments to the IRS for his outstanding tax liability, but made none.
·      Gilmore filed false tax returns for 2013 and 2014, which under reported his actual income from the law firm.
Because he exercised significant control over the law firm’s financial affairs, Gilmore was a person responsible for withholding payroll taxes from the gross salary and wages of the law firm’s employees to cover individual income, Social Security and Medicare tax obligations.  For the tax quarters ending March 31, 2016, and June 30, 2016, the law firm withheld tax payments from its employees’ checks, but Gilmore failed to pay over in full the payroll taxes due to the IRS. 
Gilmore also submitted a loan application to Ocean First Bank containing false statements. On Nov. 21, 2014, Gilmore reviewed, signed, and submitted to Ocean First Bank a Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA) to obtain refinancing of a mortgage loan for $1.5 million with a “cash out” provision that provided Gilmore would obtain cash from the loan. On Jan. 22, 2015, Gilmore submitted another URLA updating the initial application. Gilmore failed to disclose his outstanding 2013 tax liabilities and personal loans that he had obtained from others on the URLAs. Gilmore received $572,000 from the cash out portion of the loan, the proceeds of which he did not apply to his unpaid taxes. 
The tax evasion count and the two counts of failing to collect, account for, and pay over payroll taxes each carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison, and a $250,000 fine, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense. The two counts of filing a false tax return each carry a maximum penalty of three years in prison, and a $250,000 fine, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense. The count alleging loan application fraud carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine. Gilmore will be arraigned at a date to be determined.
First Assistant U.S. Attorney Honig credited special agents of IRS-Criminal Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge John R. Tafur, special agents with U.S. Attorney’s Office under the direction of Supervisory Special Agent Thomas Mahoney, and special agents of the FBI Red Bank Resident Agency, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Gregory W. Ehrie in Newark, for the investigation leading to today’s indictment.
The government is represented by Deputy U.S. Attorney Matthew J. Skahill; Assistant U.S. Attorney Jihee G. Suh of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Special Prosecutions Division; and Trial Attorney Thomas F. Koelbl of the U.S. Department of Justice - Tax Division. 
The charges and allegations in the indictment are merely accusations, and Gilmore is considered innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Tax Filing Tips from the New York State Tax Department + Free Resources to Promptly Receive Refunds Owed




The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today encouraged taxpayers to prepare for income tax filing season by reviewing some important tips that can ease the process and ensure accurate returns and promptly issued refunds.

“We are committed to fair and efficient tax administration, which means all returns are analyzed by our advanced processing system to detect errors and fraud,” said Acting Commissioner Nonie Manion. “To ensure your return sails through this process and any refund owed is issued promptly, review these tips and all the resources on our website at www.tax.ny.gov.”

E-file for free. A large percentage of New Yorkers qualify to electronically prepare and file both their federal and state income tax returns for free. Last year, more than 155,000 taxpayers took advantage of the free-filing options available on the Tax Department website, and close to 92% e-filed their returns—speeding refunds.

File early. Don’t put it off until the last minute. Filing in a rush can lead to errors that will delay any refund you may be owed.

Save a tree. E-filing is safer and more efficient than sending paper returns through the mail. Nearly 92% of all New York State personal income tax returns are electronically prepared and filed. All returns, whether filed electronically or on paper, undergo the same systematic review.
File for free. Taxpayers with adjusted gross household incomes of $66,000 or less in 2018 may access free, user-friendly software from their computer, smartphone, or tablet at www.tax.ny.gov (search: Free File). The tax preparation software helps prevent filing errors and processing delays. It may also help you find potentially valuable credits you may have missed.

Access your Account Summary. This page provides a central location for viewing details of your tax account. You can view prepayments to accurately report on your tax return when filing. This includes estimated tax payments made throughout the year as well as payments made with your extension of time to file.

File on time. To avoid penalties and interest, file on time. The penalties are much higher for late filing than for late payment.

Use direct deposit. Receive any refund due up to a week faster by having it directly deposited into your bank account. Be sure to double check the routing and account numbers for your account.

Check your refund online. If you’re eager to find out the status of your claim for an income tax refund, use the Check your Refund  app on our website: www.tax.ny.gov. It’s the fastest and most convenient way to know when to expect your refund. You’ll need to enter the refund amount you're claiming, your Social Security number, and which form you filed.

Woman Sentenced to 5 Years in Federal Prison for Participating in IRS Impersonation Scam



John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that NANCY J. FRYE, 51, of Bristol, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to 60 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for her involvement in an IRS impersonation scam that defrauded hundreds of victims in the United States and Canada.

An IRS impersonation scam is operated by individuals who falsely represent themselves as employees of the IRS to obtain money from victims.  Typically, those executing the fraudulent scheme make unsolicited telephone calls to people and tell them that they are IRS agents or officers calling on behalf of the IRS.  During the calls, the impersonator tells the call recipient that the recipient has an outstanding debt with the IRS that must be paid immediately.  The impersonator then threatens persons with either arrest or a lawsuit if they do not immediately settle the bogus IRS debt.  Victims are instructed to wire money to individuals they believe are employees of the IRS in order to avoid the threatened action.

According to court documents and statements made in court, in October 2015, FRYE received phone calls and text messages from individuals who successfully recruited her to pick up money that was wired through MoneyGram and Western Union and to deposit the money into specific bank accounts.  FRYE, in turn, recruited Douglas Martin and others to assist her in picking up wired funds from locations in central Connecticut.  FRYE then deposited the money that she collected into the bank accounts.

Between October 2015 and June 2016, FRYE, and others working at her direction, received approximately $588,000 in wired funds from approximately 574 victims.Judge Bryant ordered FRYE to pay restitution in the amount of $585,321.

FRYE and Martin were arrested on September 15, 2016.

On June 12, 2017, FRYE pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Martin pleaded guilty to the same charge and, on November 2, 2017, was sentenced to 41 months of imprisonment.

Judge Bryant ordered FRYE, who is released on bond, to report to prison on January 8, 2018.

Since October 2013, TIGTA has received reports of more than 2.1 million impersonation related calls with more than 12,400 victims reporting losses of approximately $62 million.

This matter is being investigated by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury and U.S. Postal Inspection Service.  The U.S. Attorney gratefully acknowledges the assistance provided by the Rocky Hill Police Department, Bristol Police Department, and New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.

EDIBLE ARRANGEMENTS FRANCHISE OWNER PLEADS GUILTY TO BILKING CITY AND STATE OUT OF MORE THAN $185,000 IN TAXES Defendant To Make Full Restitution Including Penalties And Interest



Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown, joined by New York State Department of Taxation and Finance Commissioner Thomas H. Mattox, announced that on THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 2015 a Queens man who owns an Edible Arrangements franchise in Springfield Gardens, Queens, has pleaded guilty to violations of the New York State Tax Code for failing to pay more than $185,000 in taxes due to both New York City and New York State. 
District Attorney Brown said, “Sales taxes are meant for the public treasury - not to line the pockets of businessmen. The defendant showed a callous disregard for the tax laws. He stole from his customers as well as from the State of New York and the City by under reporting his business’ earnings. The defendant has now admitted his guilt and will be sentenced accordingly.” 
Commissioner Mattox said, “The defendant admitted to willfully stealing tax dollars paid by customers, a crime that can’t be tolerated. We will continue to work with District Attorney Brown and other law enforcement partners to prosecute those who attempt to evade paying their fair share of taxes.” 
District Attorney Brown identified the defendant as Maurice Letman, 42, of Springfield Gardens, Queens. The defendant is the owner of MSM Arrangements that operates as an Edible Arrangements franchise at 133-23 Springfield Boulevard in Queens. The business sells fruit baskets and fruit bouquets. Letman pleaded guilty to violations of sections 1804 and 1802 of the New York State Tax Code and corporate defendant MSM Arrangements pleaded guilty to a violation of section 1804 of the Tax Code and criminal tax fraud in the third degree before Acting Queens Supreme Court Justice Suzanne Melendez. The business will receive a conditional discharge. Defendant Letman will be sentenced on March 2, 2015. 
District Attorney Brown said that the defendant’s business collected in excess of $2 million between 2007 and 2011, but failed to pay more than $100,000 in taxes owed. Between 2011 and 2013, the defendant’s business collected just over $1.2 million yet the defendant claimed in required filings to have only taken in about $26,000 - cheating the city and state coffers of another $50,000. 
The District Attorney said that the defendant has repaid over $90,000 and must still pay another $97,537. The total restitution is $188,448. As a condition of the plea agreement, the defendant signed an agreement with the New York State Department of Taxation to pay penalties and interest in excess of $200,000. 
The investigation was conducted by Forensic Tax Auditor Harry Marc-Charles of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance under the supervision of Chunyip Tsui, the section head of Criminal Investigations Division.
