Boynton Beach man indicted for tax-refund scheme seeking $5.6M

An indictment unsealed Tuesday shows a federal grand jury in West Palm Beach returned an indictment against a Boynton Beach man for allegations that he filed false tax returns seeking $5.6 million in refunds and misled IRS investigators.

David R. Andre falsely told federal agents he purchased a home with inheritance proceeds, officials alleged, when he used money obtained fraudulently from the IRS, about $464,000.

The case involves returns filed from 2010 to 2015.

No attorney is yet listed for Andre in court records and attempts to reach him were not immediately successful. An indictment alleges crimes have been committed but a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

If convicted, prosecutors said, Andre faces a maximum of three years in prison for corruptly endeavoring to impede the due administration of the internal revenue laws, three years for each count of filing a false tax return, 10 years for each count of theft of government property, and 10 years for each money laundering count.
