18 months for Filing False Tax Returns
Alicia Raynor, business manager for Compassion at Home, was ordered to pay $799,625.27 in restitution and was sentenced to 18 months in prison for false filing of tax return and wire fraud. Raynor siphoned payments from the company into an account she opened in her name. She used Intuit, a payroll and payment processing service.
Raynor masked the payments to make it appear as if they were made to Bank of America, Capital One or Compassion at Home employees. She stole $238,871.58 from the company in less than one year.
Raynor received $1,214,444 in payments from her employer from 2013 to 2016 and did not report the income on her tax returns. This caused the IRS a loss of $370,005.
