Harnett County Woman Charged with State Tax Offenses
Date: March 1, 2013
RALEIGH – A Lillington woman was arrested Wednesday on felony tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.
Brittany K. Blue, 23, of 111 Pat Way Lane, Lillington was charged on February 27, 2013 with two counts of Obtaining Property by False Pretenses and two counts of Uttering Forged Instrument.
Arrest warrants allege that Blue filed fraudulent North Carolina individual income tax returns for tax years 2009 and 2010 representing that she was employed by a local business and had North Carolina income taxes withheld from her wages, different than that which was reported by her employer. Additional charges allege that Blue uttered, published passed and delivered as true, falsely made and forged 2009 and 2010 wage and tax statements.
Blue appeared before a Harnett County magistrate and was placed under a $20,000 secured bond. A first appearance was scheduled for March 1, 2013 in Wake County District Court in Raleigh.
The charges against Blue resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department's Criminal Investigations Section in Raleigh.
