A St. John’s man, who is no stranger to the courts, is facing a raft of charges after allegedly creating and filing false T4 documents. He’s been charged with 28 tax fraud charges under the Income Tax Act as well as three criminal charges.
The Canada Revenue Agency says the income tax filings resulted in false returns totalling just over $85,000.
Raymond Joseph Mahoney is charged with filing his own false tax returns in 2011 and 2012, as well as filing false returns for 25 other people in 2012.
He’s also facing criminal charges of forgery, uttering forged documents and fraud.
Mahoney was charged back in 2014 for defrauding and stealing merchandise from a mobile phone store he worked for. He was forced to pay nearly $8,000 in restitution.
Mahoney, who is originally from Stephenville, faced fraud charges in that jurisdiction last year, and was also recently charged with armed robbery in connection with an incident in Mount Pearl last September.
Mahoney is scheduled to appear in St. John’s provincial court on the latest charges May 30.
