Million Dollar Tax Fraud Uncovered
A Hartford man and a Newington woman are charged with an attempt to claim more than a million dollars in state income tax refunds intended for other people. Commissioner of Revenue Services Kevin Sullivan says it’s the largest attempt in more than $10 million in fraudulent refund claims his department has uncovered:
23-year-old Orlando Ramos of Hartford and 27-year-old Katherine Fernandez of Newington are charged in the scheme.
Since it’s a criminal case, the tax department is not giving many details of how the crime played out.
