A federal grand jury sitting in West Palm Beach, Florida returned an indictment charging a Florida resident with corruptly endeavoring to obstruct and impede the due administration of the internal revenue laws, filing false tax returns, theft of government property and money laundering, announced the Justice Department’s Tax Division. According to the indictment, David R. Andre of Boynton Beach, Florida, filed false income tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from 2010 to 2015 that sought more than $5.6 million in fraudulent tax refunds. The indictment further alleges that the IRS paid out approximately $463,920, which was deposited into Andre’s personal bank account. Andre also allegedly attempted to impede the due administration of the internal revenue laws by making false statements to IRS agents during interviews in 2015. According to the indictment, Andre falsely stated to IRS agents that he purchased his residence with inheritance proceeds, when in fact he purchased it with illegal proceeds from the tax refund fraud.
