3 in NE Arkansas indicted in income tax scheme
Question of the Day
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Three Osceola residents are charged in federal court with running a scheme in which they’re accused of filing fraudulent claims for $91,000 in income tax refunds.
A 14-count grand jury indictment handed up Wednesday charges 39-year-old Christopher Minor, 60-year-old Annie Watkins and 50-year-old Roosevelt Oliver with filing and conspiring to file false claims for federal income tax refunds.
The indictment alleges that the three used personal information from unemployed individuals and filed fake tax returns in their names and without their consent.
Prosecutors say the group filed 29 false income tax returns. They allegedly accepted refunds by checks or debit cards, and the persons whose names they used didn’t get any of the money.
Prosecutors say the scheme operated from January 2010 through February 2011.
