New Orleans woman arrested for tax fraud scheme involving prison inmates...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – A New Orleans woman faces multiple felonies for a tax fraud scheme that involved filing phony tax returns in the names of other taxpayers, including two prison inmates.

Darylynn Carter (Booking Photo) is accused of filing fraudulent tax returns and directing the refunds to her own bank account. The phony tax filings included falsified W2 income tax withholding documents.

Investigators determined that in all five cases, the taxpayers whose names appeared on the tax returns had earned no income during the tax year in question. In two cases, they had earned no income because they were incarcerated at the time.

Carter is the 45th person arrested under a joint anti-fraud initiative of the Louisiana Department of Revenue and the state Attorney General’s office. She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Tuesday on five counts of computer fraud, five counts of injuring public records, and one count of theft in the amount of $1,755.

LDR reminds vendors about sales tax collections at special events, including 4th of July...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – As the state enters its festive summer period, agents of the Louisiana Department of Revenue are reminding vendors that they conduct on-site enforcement of the state’s sales tax laws with vendors at special events such as fairs, festivals, craft shows and trade shows, the department announced Tuesday.

“Louisiana law requires all businesses and individuals making retails sales in the state to collect and remit sales taxes,” Secretary of Revenue Tim Barfield said. “This enforcement action helps to ensure that vendors at special events don’t enjoy an unfair competitive advantage over other local businesses.”

Louisiana hosts more than 400 festivals each year.  A “vendor” is defined as any person or entity selling merchandise or providing a taxable service. This includes sellers, promoters, exhibitors and booth owners.

Taxable products and services include, but are not limited to:

  • Prepared food
  • Clothing
  • Arts & crafts
  • Event admissions

All special event retailers must have a Louisiana sales tax account. They must collect sales taxes from their customers, and must remit those taxes to state and local taxing authorities. Violators are subject to fines, penalties, interest, and possible civil litigation or criminal prosecution.

Vendors needing to register for a sales tax account should visit www.revenue.louisiana.gov/specialevents
