Taycheedah Prisoner Sentenced on Five Felony Counts of Tax Fraud

 

FOND DU LAC - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced today that Kristine Flynn appeared in court and was sentenced on 5 counts of felony tax credit fraud before the Honorable Judge Gary Sharpe, in Fond Du Lac County Circuit Court. Judge Sharpe ordered that Flynn serve five years of initial confinement followed by five years of extended supervision. Among other things she is ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $2,518.00 to the Department of Revenue.

 

According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice's criminal complaint, Flynn assisted in the preparation and filing of several fraudulent Homestead Tax Credit forms for herself and others. In each of the tax credit forms, Flynn gave fictitious landlord, address, and income information. Flynn defrauded the Wisconsin Department of Revenue of several thousand dollars in taxpayer money that was meant to assist low-income individuals living in rental properties.

 

This matter was investigated by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue and the Wisconsin State Capitol Police Department. Assistant Attorney General Eric D. Défort represents the State of Wisconsin as Special Prosecutor for Dane County and Fond du Lac County in this case.
