Kent woman faces tax charges

Dec. 3, 2013

A Kent, Ohio, woman is accused of underreporting her taxable income by more than $240,000, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Youlanda Banks, age 57, was charged via criminal information with two counts of making or subscribing a false tax return.

Banks filed a tax return for 2007 stating her total income was $54,059 when, in fact, it was approximately $157,238. She filed a tax return for 2008 stating her total income was $3,169 when, in fact, it was $143,765, according to the information.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert J. Patton following an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service.

A charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
