South Carolina Man Pleads Guilty in State Tax Case

May 3, 2016

RALEIGH – A South Carolina man pleaded guilty Tuesday in Wake County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Daryl Kenyon Thomas, 38, of 202 Parsonage Street, Clio, SC, pleaded guilty on May 3, 2016 to three counts of Willful Failure to File Return, Supply Information, or Pay tax.

Wake County District Court Judge Jane P. Gray sentenced Thomas to a 70-day active prison term after an open plea. Thomas was immediately remanded to the custody of the Wake County Sheriff’s Office.

The investigation by special agents with the North Carolina Department of Revenue found that Thomas was required to file North Carolina Individual Income Tax Returns for tax years 2011, 2012, and 2013, but willfully failed to file the returns. During this period of time, Thomas was an employee at The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., in Cumberland County. From 2011 to 2013, Thomas’ gross taxable wages from Goodyear ranged from approximately $66,000 to $80,000 per year.

The charges against Thomas resulted from an investigation by Special Agents with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Section in Raleigh.
