Defendant Failed to Report over $1.1 Million to the IRS

A San Fernando Valley woman who owned and operated three mortgage referral businesses was sentenced by United States District Judge Gary A. Feess to 18 months imprisonment after pleading guilty to tax fraud.

Shelly Tammy Kim, 43, of Northridge, was ordered to pay restitution to the Internal Revenue Service in the amount of $398,164, representing the taxes owed for the years 2003 through 2005.

In imposing the sentence, Judge Feess noted the defendant "gamed the system" by writing commission checks from her business accounts to other individuals to hide over $1 million in income, when in fact, the defendant was cashing the checks and using the money to fund her own lavish lifestyle.

The judge also noted that the defendant had used sophisticated means in committing the offense, and stated that a custodial sentence was necessary to protect our voluntary system of reporting income and paying tax.

According to her plea agreement, Kim owned and operated Best Funding Incorporated (BFI), CalState Lending Incorporated (CLI) and Pacifica Mortgage (PMI)-- companies that earned income by referring loans to various lenders from whom they received loan referral commissions. Kim was required to report her income from these companies on the individual tax returns she filed for the years 2003 through 2005.

A news release distributed by the IRS said the following:

"Kim failed to report all of the income she received from BFI, CLI and PMI on her 2003 through 2005 tax returns by issuing checks payable to three individuals and informing her tax return preparer that these payments represented commission payments to loan agents for loan referrals. However, Kim cashed the checks and used the funds for her own benefit."

The IRS said Kim, in filing her income tax returns for the years 2003, 2004 and 2005 Kim failed to report approximately $469,000, $420,000 and $295,554, respectively, in income resulting in a tax due of approximately $398,164.

According to documents filed with the court, Kim's crimes appear to have been motivated by the desire to live a lifestyle that was not commensurate with her reported income. That lifestyle included the purchase of a multimillion dollar home, luxury car leases and gambling trips to Las Vegas during these years.

The investigation of Kim was conducted by IRS - Criminal Investigation in Los Angeles in conjunction with the United States Attorney's Office for the Central District of California.

Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop.
