Orange Park Woman Indicted On Tax Fraud Charges | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- An Orange Park woman could face a maximum of 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 if she is convicted of conspiracy to file false claims for fraudulent federal income tax returns.
Shatraya Anatricia Watson, 25, took part in a conspiracy that used other peoples' identities to file federal income tax returns without their permission, according to a release from the office of U.S. Attorney Robert E. O'Neill.
Her role in the conspiracy was to allow another person to use her house as a place where the checks could be delivered in the mail. She also allowed her bank account to be used for wire transfers of these tax refunds, the release said.
The case will be prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen O'Malley. It was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service, the IRS Criminal Investigation division, and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
