Krystle Marie Reyes, 25, is accused of swindling more than $ 2 million from the state of Oregon.
An Oregon woman who allegedly received a $ 2.1 million tax refund after filing a false claim has been caught following a $ 200,000 spending spree.
Krystle Marie Reyes of Salem was arrested Wednesday for what is believed to be the largest case of fraud in the state of Oregon.
The 25-year-old used TurboTax to falsely report wages of $ 3 million on her 2011 personal Income Tax return, according to an affidavit obtained by The Oregonian. Reyes used the software’s tax calculator to claim a refund of $ 2.1 million.
Turbotax issued Reyes a Visa card with the refund amount after Oregon approved the sum.
The affidavit states that Oregon revenue officials only discovered the fraud when Reyes reported the card that contained the seven-figure sum lost.
