North Carolina woman arrested on seven tax charges

Columbia, SC --- Capricia Janeen Wizzard-Murray, of Knightdale, NC, was arrested today by South Carolina Department of Revenue investigators on seven counts of willfully assisting in the preparation of a fraudulent tax return.

During 2009, Wizard-Murray prepared and submitted fraudulent SC individual income tax returns to SCDOR on behalf of seven individual taxpayers. The income tax returns included fraudulent taxpayer information along with fraudulent W-2 information. The fraudulent income tax returns generated SC tax refunds for individuals who were not entitled to a tax refund. 

Wizzard-Murray is currently being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Columbia pending a bond hearing. If convicted of the seven charges, she could face penalties of up to 35 years in prison and/or $3,500 in fines plus the cost of prosecution.
