SC Department of Revenue arrests Myrtle Beach man on tax charges


Columbia, SC (October 1, 2012) --- SC Department of Revenue officials today arrested Jermaine Mouzon, 31, for one count of assisting in the preparation of a false income tax return, one count of forgery and three counts of conspiracy.


Mouzon, a Myrtle Beach resident, presented a fraudulent W2 form to a tax preparer in order to have a 2011 income tax return submitted in his name. Mouzon did not work for the employer but stated that he earned $14,897 in wages and had $670 in state taxes withheld. He claimed a federal and state tax refund totaling $8,684 to which he was not entitled.


If convicted of the charges, Jermaine Mouzon could face up to $15,500 in fines and/or 25 years in prison. Mouzon is currently being held at the Darlington County Detention Center where he is awaiting a bond hearing.


The Darlington County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the arrest.
