Tracy Mullins, a resident of Spartanburg County, was arrested today by South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) investigators on four counts of tax evasion.
For tax years 2013 – 2016, Mullins filed false W-4 forms with her employer claiming to be exempt from income taxes. She failed to timely file South Carolina Individual Income Tax returns and, based on her earned gross income, evaded paying $9,787 in income taxes due to the state.
Mullins is currently being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center. If convicted, she faces fines up to $10,000 and/or up to 5 years in prison per count.
The SCDOR is committed to the fair administration of tax laws. By taking enforcement action against noncompliant taxpayers, the Department seeks to prevent unfairly increasing the tax burden on those who do comply.
