Used car dealer arrested for tax fraud, loses dealer’s license...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – A Metairie used car dealer faces felony charges for evading sales taxes on the purchases of a Ferrari and a classic Lincoln Continental.

Investigators with the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) say Joseph Wayne Leone (Booking Photo) bought the cars using his LDR Resale Certificate, which allows sales-tax exempt purchases of items that are intended for resale to customers.  But he failed to pay sales taxes on the vehicles after registering them for his personal use.

“There are many different types of tax fraud,” said Barry Kelly, director of the LDR Criminal Investigations Division. “We investigate and prosecute anyone who defrauds Louisiana taxpayers.”

Leone bought the 2006 Ferrari for $124,000 from a dealer in Florida. When registering the car with the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV), Leone listed its taxable value as $5,000 and sold it to himself for that amount. Then he paid $479.75 in sales taxes for that purchase. He owes $6,885.48 in state sales taxes, penalties and interest for underreporting the taxable value of the Ferrari.

Leone also bought a 1956 Lincoln Continental in Texas for $44,000, but registered it with the Louisiana OMV for personal use with his home address. Because personal ownership of the car is not tax exempt, he owes $2,540 in state sales taxes, penalties and interest.

LDR worked closely with the Louisiana Used Motor Vehicle Commission on this investigation. “Mr. Leone’s used motor vehicle dealer’s license has been revoked,” said LUMVC Executive Director Derek Parnell. “Further investigation into his activities is underway, and more violations are pending.”

Leone was booked on Tuesday into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of Theft, Injuring Public Records and Failing to Account for State Tax Monies. He is the 43rd person arrested under a joint anti-fraud initiative between LDR and the state Attorney General’s Office.

“Our anti-fraud initiative with the Department of Revenue has resulted in dozens of arrests of individuals whose actions negatively impact the hard-working taxpayers of Louisiana,” Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said. “We will continue to investigate and pursue those who commit fraud and violate the law.” 

Destrehan couple face felony charges for fraud, tax evasion...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – A Destrehan tax preparer and her husband face felony counts of fraud and tax evasion, the Louisiana Department of Revenue announced Wednesday.

The charges against Ihsia (Ee-Sha) Eugene and Tedrick Eugene, of 62 Brandon Hall in Destrehan, are the result of a joint anti-fraud investigation by the Department of Revenue and the state Attorney General’s office. They are the 41st and 42nd suspects arrested since the inter-agency crackdown began two years ago in March 2013.

Investigators say that as a partner in Secure Tax Service LLC, Ihsia Eugene (Booking Photo) filed tax returns claiming fabricated business loss deductions on behalf of clients who did not own businesses, or who had not sustained any business losses. The phony deductions resulted in $62,660 in fraudulent refunds.

Eugene is accused also of underreporting the income she earned from Secure Tax Service. She reported earnings of $22,000 in 2012 when bank records demonstrate she earned $84,704.38. And in 2013, she failed to file a tax return at all on earnings of $88,296. In all, she is suspected of evading state taxes on income of $151,000. She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Tuesday, March 10 on 11 counts of Filing or Maintaining False Public Records, 11 counts of Computer Fraud, two counts of Criminal Penalty for Evasion of Tax and one count of Failure to File.

In a related case, Tedrick Eugene (Booking Photo) is charged with evading state taxes on income of $28,386 he earned from Secure Tax Service by failing to file a tax return in 2013. He was arrested and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Tuesday, March 10 on one count of Criminal Penalty for Evasion of Tax and one count of Failure to File.

Tax preparer arrested on dozens of felony counts for tax fraud...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – A Harvey woman faces dozens of felony charges for falsifying information on her own tax return and those of clients of her tax preparation business.

Lisa Adams, of 1617 Carriage Lane in Harvey, allegedly submitted state tax returns for clients of Omega Tax Services that contained false business losses for companies that had not sustained any losses, and in some cases for companies that did not exist.

Louisiana Department of Revenue investigators interviewed ten of Adams’ clients. Four of them were business owners who said she fabricated losses on their 2013 tax returns. And six of them said she listed business losses on their returns despite the fact that they did not own or operate businesses in 2013.

Adams is accused also of falsifying her own tax return, citing losses for a florist shop she claimed she owned in 2013. There is no evidence that business ever existed.

And Adams is charged with falsifying a mortgage interest statement to claim a tax deduction for a property in New Orleans. In that case, she received a fraudulent refund in the amount of $716.

The entire series of fraud schemes amounted to $28,458.

Adams was arrested on Wednesday, February 25 and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on 11 counts of filing or maintaining false public records, 11 counts of computer fraud, two counts of forgery and one count of theft. She is the 41st person arrested under a joint anti-fraud initiative of the Department of Revenue and the state Attorney General’s office.
