The Old One-Two Punch – Stealing and Not Reporting Your Stolen Income
March 5, 2019
According to the DoJ, an Alabama Woman Sentenced to 46 Months in Prison for Stealing Over $700,000 From Her Employer and Failing to Report Income on Her Tax Returns.
Isn't that amazing?
Can you imagine stealing income and not
paying taxes on your stolen income?
Have none of these taxpayers (and I use that term loosely) ever heard of Al Capone?
According to court documents, from February 2007 through May 2014, Alita Baker Edeker, a resident of Valley, Alabama, embezzled $700,000 of her employer’s funds by diverting payments from clients of the company to debit and credit cards she controlled.
Edeker made false entries in the company’s books and records in order to conceal her embezzlement.
After embezzling the funds, Edeker willfully filed false tax returns for tax years 2011, 2012, and 2013 that did not report the money. (WOW!).
In addition to the term of imprisonment imposed, Edeker was ordered to serve three years of supervised release and to pay restitution in the amounts of $819,497.29 to her employer and $101,604 to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
