Court Commissioner Charged With Tax Crimes
A court commissioner from Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, was recently charged with tax fraud.
Geneva McKinley, a court commissioner who was appointed to the Children's Court in 2007, received two counts of the crime for both the state and federal levels, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. She is accused of evading taxes during the years of 2006 and 2007, as she reported close to $19,400 as income for both returns.
In 2006, McKinley should have reported nearly $36,000 as income, and more than $100,000 in 2007, the news source reported. She allegedly received more than $13,000 in refunds that should not have been given, as well as failing to pay nearly $9,000 in taxes.
McKinley earns about $98,000 annually, according to the news source. The Chief Judge for the Milwaukee County court, Jeffrey Kremers, said she will not be suspended or relocated.
The investigation was led by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, the news source added. The case will be prosecuted by the office of the attorney general.
