BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A New Orleans woman has been arrested for allegedly defrauding the state of more than $900,000 through the filing of false tax returns.

The state Department of Revenue said Thursday that 28-year-old Kenshika Jiles was arrested Wednesday and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on two felony counts of computer fraud and injuring public records. Bond was set at $70,000. It was not immediately known if she remained in custody or was represented by an attorney.

Investigators say Jiles, owner of S&A; Tax Service, prepared and submitted tax returns containing false information including phony business expenses, unreimbursed employee expenses and improper child care tax credit claims. Her alleged actions resulted in $923,751 in unpaid taxes and fraudulent refunds.
