NEW YORK — An NYPD officer was arrested and charged with tax fraud this week, after allegedly filing false tax returns, according to a criminal court complaint.
Police officer Jonathan Wally, 33, was charged Wednesday with filing fraudulent tax returns and identity theft, officials said. He appeared in Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday.
Wally, a 10-year veteran of the NYPD assigned the 34th Precinct in Washington Heights and Inwood, was accused of filing the falsified returns while moonlighting as a tax preparer for himself and others.
Wally was released on a $50,000 bond. He is due back in court on May 20.
