Gaston County Man Guilty of State Tax Charge
Date: March 28, 2007
RALEIGH –A Gaston County man pleaded guilty Wednesday in Wake County District Court to a felony tax charge filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.
Jeffrey T. McElveen, 37, who is currently incarcerated by the North Carolina Department of Corrections, pleaded guilty on March 28, 2007 to one count of obtaining property by false pretenses.
Wake County District Court Judge Jane Grey sentenced McElveen to an 11-month minimum, 14-month maximum active prison sentence.
The state’s evidence showed that McElveen cashed a $5,835 North Carolina individual income tax refund check that was based on a fraudulent tax return. The return claimed that McElveen had wages of $98,509 in 2002 when he did not earn any income during that year.
The charges against McElveen resulted from an investigation by the Department of Revenue’s Discovery and Special Projects Unit and a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division.
