A federal grand jury in the District of Nevada returned a superseding indictment charging a Las Vegas woman with two counts of filing false tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and one count of corruptly endeavoring to impair and impede the due administration of the internal revenue laws. According to the superseding indictment, from at least 2005 through at least 2009, Judith Woodward, then known as Judith Atwell, was the 99 percent owner and joint operator of a dry cleaning business, Canyon Gate Cleaners, in Las Vegas, Nevada, which she held in the name of a partnership called Canyon Enterprises LLC. Woodward is alleged to have underreported the gross receipts of Canyon Gate Cleaners on the partnership’s 2005 through 2009 tax returns. She is also alleged to have underreported her personal income on her 2005 through 2009 individual income tax returns. According to the superseding indictment, between at least 2005 and 2009, Woodward concealed the true gross receipts of the business by depositing hundreds of thousands of dollars of cash receipts into personal bank accounts she controlled or by not depositing the cash receipts into any bank account.
