Two more busted in tax scam

Following the unsealing of a superseding Grand Jury indictment, a couple from Placerville was arrested Tuesday on charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States and filing multimillion dollar liens against government officials.

Charles and Victoria Tingler were added to the case along with added charges to scheme ringleader Teresa Marie Marty, who has been charged with “filing liens against the property of three IRS employees and filing liens of at least $84 million against the property of two U.S. Justice Department attorneys,” a press release stated.

The Tinglers, who had been clients of Marty and Advanced Financial Services, allegedly filed a false tax return in 2008 with a refund of nearly $360,000. The Tinglers and Marty are all charged with filing the false return. The Tinglers filed multiple liens against the IRS revenue officer who handled their collection case when the IRS attempted to collect the fraudulent return.

The indictment also charges the three with multiple counts of unlawfully using government employees’ Social Security numbers in the liens.

The three, along with AFS officer manager Pamela Harris, were charged with participating in the conspiracy. Harris and Marty allegedly “engaged a commercial collection agency to collect one of the three false liens that Charles Tingler had filed, one of which was for $500,000.”

Harris, Marty and Rebecca Bandera-Marty, Teresa Marty’s daughter-in-law, were indicted in June for a large-scale tax fraud scheme. The three had, according to the superseding indictment, filed more than 250 false individual federal tax returns between 2008 and 2009 on behalf of clients from 26 states. In all, more than $60 million in false refunds was claimed.

The defendants face up to five years in prison for the conspiracy charge. Each filing a false claim and each charge regarding the Social Security numbers also carries a five-year charge. Each retaliatory lien charge carries 10 years.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and the IRS’ Criminal Investigation division investigated the case. Justice Department Tax Division trial attorney Ignacio Perez de la Cruz and assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew D. Segal are prosecuting the case.
