Wake County Man Charged In State Tax Case


RALEIGH – A Zebulon man was arrested Monday on felony charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Marc Fellner, 40, of 1242 Braemar Highland Drive, Zebulon, was charged on September 29, 2014 with three counts of Obtaining Property by False Pretenses.

Arrest warrants allege that Fellner filed false North Carolina individual income tax returns for 2011, 2012, and 2013 claiming more North Carolina withholding tax than was actually withheld by his employers.  The warrants allege that for the tax years 2011, 2012, and 2013, Fellner claimed North Carolina withholdings of $30,929.00, when in fact he knew that the North Carolina individual income tax withheld by his employers totaled $5,300.31, all in an effort to receive larger refunds than he was entitled to receive.     

Fellner appeared before a Wake County Judge and was placed under a $30,000 bond.  A first appearance was scheduled for September 30, 2014 in Wake County District Court in Raleigh. 

The charges against Fellner resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Section in Raleigh.
