Former Revenue Employee Sentenced On Tax Fraud Charges

A former employee of the Department of Revenue has admitted to tax fraud charges while she operated a business on the side.

Anita Turner of Rocky Mount pleaded guilty Thursday to four felony counts of aiding or assisting in the preparation of fraudulent tax returns.

Authorities say she owned Wombie's, Inc., a grant preparation business. The state says her company received cash payments of nearly $35,000 from 2006 to 2009 from various clients that Turner failed to report. At that time she worked as a processing assistant for the revenue department.

The 47-year-old woman was given a suspended sentence, placed on three years probation, and pay a $5,000 fine. Turner also must file corrected tax returns, pay the tax due and not assist others with tax returns during her probation.

    Frauds and cheats are whats wrong with the economy! This includes the fraudulent justices that oil the revoling doors in the prison system. If they grew a set and helped take a bite out of crime. McGruff would be so pleased.

    She will probably be able to get a job for the Obama administration.
