A 17-year veteran of the IRS was arrested on Wednesday and charged with filing false personal tax returns for three years and underreporting about $90,000 worth of income, according to Acting U.S. Attorney Joshua Levy’s office.

Ndeye Amy Thioub, 67, of Swampscott, MA, works as a revenue agent assigned to the Large Business and International Division of the IRS, conducting independent field examination and related investigations of complex income tax returns, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.

Not only did Thioub have extensive knowledge of accounting techniques and practices, she also taught them at Salem State University. She worked as a visiting instructor at the institution, teaching college-level classes that included accounting standards and ethics, according to the Levy’s office.

Thioub is accused of filing false personal tax returns for tax years 2017, 2018 and 2019, claiming a business loss from a purported “import and export” business she claimed to have. The claim led her to underreport her income by $42,805 in 2017, $20,324 in 2018 and $27,063 in 2019, a total of $90,192, the U.S. Attorney’s office wrote.

The charge of filing a false tax return can lead to a sentence of up to three years in prison, one year of supervised release and a $100,000 fine.
