PHILIPSBURG–An auditor G.E. (53) was arrested by police for fraud last week Friday. Police said on Wednesday that the suspect took care of income tax returns and the payment of SZV premiums from the year 2014 up to and including the present.
He received cash from his clients to meet the tax obligations, but did not hand over the money to the Tax Department and the SZV; instead, he put it into his own pocket, according to police.
“In order to satisfy his customers, he made false receipts which showed that the obligations to the Tax Department and the SZV had been met. Due to administrative delays at the institutions, customers received a letter from the SZV and the Tax Department after two years, stating that there was a payment overdue. When the customers with the receipts issued by G.E. went to the SZV and the Tax Department, it turned out that all receipts were false.
“In addition, G.E. was also found to draw up false employers’ statements and false pay slips. In this way, the accused G.E. managed to obscure a considerable amount of money. The investigation is ongoing,” stated police Wednesday.
