An Atlanta man has entered a guilty plea to filing fraudulent corporation taxes in order to collect more than $200,000.

According to federal authorities, an Atlanta man entered a guilty plea to tax fraud after allegedly submitting false claims to the Internal Revenue Service in order to claim refunds totaling more than $200,000 from the IRS.

Lucious D. Mack, 49, was charged with filing fake corporation income tax returns, according to U.S. Attorney Kurt R. Erskine.

 

After selling property in DeKalb County, Mack reportedly filed a tax return for his company Carter Industries, Inc. in which he fraudulently claimed that the company had pre-paid taxes and long-term capital gains taxes on those sales. According to the findings of the study, Mack never owned the property.

The bogus files resulted in Mack claiming a $109,521 return, according to the allegations against him.

Mack allegedly falsified information in a document for Carter International Holdings, Inc., claiming he had paid capital gains taxes on the sale of a property in Bibb County, which investigators later discovered he had never possessed in the first place.

The total amount of the return for the second claim was $105,877.

“Mack went to extraordinary measures to deceive the Internal Revenue Service,” Erskine stated. The investigation into this case, however, revealed his deception, and he now faces the potential of prison time.”

Mack is scheduled to be sentenced on May 10th.

According to IRS Criminal Investigator James E. Dorsey, “we continue to find individuals attempting to defraud the taxation system.”

“This appeal should serve as a reminder to both honest taxpayers and would-be tax cheats that the Internal Revenue Service and the United States Attorney’s Office will work tirelessly to protect the integrity of the United States Tax Administration System and to ensure that everyone complies with their tax obligations,” the IRS said.
