BATON ROUGE - A New Orleans woman has been arrested for allegedly defrauding the state of more than $900,000 through the filing of false tax returns.

The state Department of Revenue said Thursday that 28-year-old Kenshika Jiles was arrested Wednesday and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on two felony counts of computer fraud and injuring public records. It was not immediately known if she remained in custody or was represented by an attorney.

Investigators say Jiles, owner of S&A Tax Service, prepared and submitted tax returns containing false information including phony business expenses, unreimbursed employee expenses and improper child care tax credit claims. Her alleged actions resulted in $923,751 in unpaid taxes and fraudulent refunds.
