Rocky Mount Woman Pleads Guilty To State Tax Charges

Date: July 31, 2013

RALEIGH – A Rocky Mount woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in Wake County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Carla Yvette McWilliams, 51, of 4705 Gardenia Circle, Rocky Mount, pleaded guilty on July 31, 2013, to two counts of failure to file North Carolina Individual Income Tax returns.

District Court Judge Debra A. Sasser consolidated the charges and sentenced McWilliams to 45 days in jail.  The sentence was suspended and McWilliams was placed on supervised probation for 24 months.  McWilliams was ordered to pay restitution of $12,073.22, and pay court cost. 

An investigation by a special agent with the North Carolina Department of Revenue found that McWilliams was employed by Edgecombe Community College from 2006 through 2010.  McWilliams received income, but did not file or pay her individual income taxes for 2006, 2007, 2009 or 2010.

The charges against McWilliams resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Section in Raleigh.
