Emergency Room Physician Charged with State Tax Offenses


RALEIGH – An Orange County man was arrested Thursday on tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

John Kehinde Keku, 56, of 204 Cates Farm Rd., Chapel Hill was charged on March 19, 2015 with two counts of Willful Failure to File Return, Supply Information, or Pay tax. 

Arrest warrants allege that Keku was required to file North Carolina Individual Income Tax Returns for tax years 2012 and 2013, but willfully failed to file the returns.  Keku is employed by ER CARE, PLLC.

Keku appeared before a Wake County magistrate and was placed under a $20,000 secured bond.  A first court appearance was scheduled for April 15, 2015 in Wake County District Court in Raleigh.

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