Dearborn Office Manager Goes To Jail For
Embezzlement And Tax Fraud
Tracy McInchak, 40, of Dearborn, Michigan, was sentenced to 15 months imprisonment and 3 years of supervised release for embezzlement and making a false statement on a federal tax return, U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade announced today.
U.S. Attorney McQuade was joined in the announcement by U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Andrew Arena and IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Erick Martinez.
In addition, United States District Judge Robert H. Cleland also ordered Mclnchak to pay a special assessment of $200 and restitution to the Internal Revenue Service of $62,706 and Comerica Bank of $440,614.
In July of 2011, Mclnchak pled guilty to one count of embezzlement and one count of filing a false tax return. According to court documents, from August 2004 until March 2010, McInchak was employed as an office manager at WY-Campbell, an investment bank in Detroit, Michigan. During that time, she embezzled approximately $462,000 by writing corporate checks to herself and to credit card companies to pay personal expenses. Over the six year period, checks were created for up to $6,000, several times a month. She also knowingly failed to report over $224,000 of her embezzled monies on her 2009 federal income tax return.
"The investigation revealed that McInchak's stolen money was taxable and she intentionally failed to report it. She stole from her employer for six years. IRS Criminal Investigation will thoroughly investigate those to blatantly steal from others and fail to pay their taxes," said IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Erick Martinez.
The case was investigated by special agents of the FBI and IRS Criminal Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Barrington Wilkins.
