Woman Held in Tax Fraud Case

August 27, 2004|From a Times Staff Writer

A Moreno Valley woman was arrested on suspicion of tax fraud Thursday, accused of two counts of falsifying W-2 forms to obtain a state income tax refund, authorities said.

Sylvia Chabre Christopher, 36, used a false W-2 to obtain a refund of $2,329, said Franchise Tax Board spokesman Barry Gilbert.

Each count carries a maximum of three years in prison.

Three San Bernardino County residents have received jail time this month for receiving refunds from fake tax forms. The cases are unrelated.
