Orange County Woman Sentenced in State Tax Scheme
RALEIGH – An Orange County woman was sentenced today in Wake
County District Court on felony tax charges filed by the North Carolina
Department of Revenue.
Mebane resident Anita Diane McAdoo, 39, pleaded guilty on July 26,
2004 to two counts of income tax evasion and two counts of aiding
or assisting in the preparation of fraudulent state income tax returns.
Her judgment was continued until today.
Wake County District Court Judge Orlando F. Hudson, Jr. sentenced
McAdoo to a six-month minimum, eight-month maximum prison term. The
sentence was suspended and McAdoo was placed on supervised probation
for 36 months. She was also ordered to file amended tax returns within
90 days and to pay restitution within six months.
The state’s evidence showed that McAdoo filed false North Carolina
individual income tax returns and assisted another taxpayer in filing
fraudulent returns. The returns deceived the Department of Revenue
and caused the state to issue income tax refunds to them that were
greater than they were entitled to receive. The Department’s
investigation revealed that several individuals, including McAdoo,
were involved with this refund scheme. The case is related to the
earlier conviction of William D. Fairley of Greensboro who received
a 12-month minimum, 16-month maximum active prison term.
The charges against McAdoo resulted from an investigation by a special
agent with the Department of Revenue Criminal Investigations Division.
