  • Thursday, January 17, 2013

A Summerville man and a Goose Creek woman have been arrested for tax evasion.
SCDOR investigators have charged Gregory Neff of Summerville with three counts of tax evasion with a total of $11,371 of tax evaded, according to a SC DOR press release.
They also arrested Victoria Cooper-Hilliard of Goose Creek on six counts for a total of $12,419 of tax evaded, according to the release.
According to the release, investigators with the SCDOR arrested 18 people in an ongoing investigation targeting those who claim to be exempt from taxation with their employers and fail to file required state income tax returns. 
Those arrested in the investigation filed W4 forms with their employers claiming to be exempt from taxation which caused little to no taxes to be withheld from their paychecks. Those same employees failed to file tax returns for multiple years.
This statewide investigation resulted in charges of tax evasion against 18 individuals from the low country, midlands and upstate. The 18 individuals collectively earned over $6 million during the period of investigation and have a collective state tax liability of nearly $285,000.
