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.

    Next to the Nutting case, which is very likely tied into this case as it is reported on this site he was a client, these are the biggest news stories in the county this year. With the amount of fraud in this case there are bound to be many more who are exposed trying to rip off the people by fraud and the ones involved are facing lengthy federal prison sentences. Who in the county is next?

    @Frank, The article states that Ms. Marty had over 250 different fraudulent tax returns, in various stages of filing. I read up on Tax Fraud. Even those people who had not received a fraudulant payment, can be assessed a 20% penalty, on the amount they were trying to obtain illegally. If most of them were attempting false payments of a half million dollars, that's a hundred grand in penalties. Right now, none of those involved are out of the woods for sure!

    Gold miner; this huge tax fraud around a hundred million, you would think would have the attention of the main paper, it doesn't. There could be a reason for this lack of reporting as to who it involves. Remember this paper Endorsed Nuttin and his crony Knight and couldn't have been more wrong in their endorsement for Sheriff. The tax fraud may be a part of the Sovereign Citizen Movement of anti-govt whack-jobs who are all being sent to prison. Question is, who in this county will be joining them? You would think this paper would want to know and would have a reporter all over this.

    @Fran, Someone commented on one of the Nutting threads, that Ray had supposedly used Ms. Marty for bookkeeping services, and terminated her services, when she was indicted.

    Actually, I believe that it was Frank that disclosed information about Nutting's alleged tax-preparer relationship. It is a real reach to prove fraud on the part of the client in this situation. Ms Marty was stealing from the government, allegedly, and intentionally misrepresenting her clients, allegedly, all for her personal gain. Justice is blind, but hating is not...
