Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit posts one today
USA v. Greene-Thapedi (ND Ill.) [10 pp.]
Before WOOD, EVANS, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.
WOOD, Circuit Judge. For three years running, Llwellyn Greene-Thapedi failed to file her income tax returns in time. After processing her multiple late returns, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued her a refund check in the amount of $17,028. Later, it discovered that she was not entitled to this check after all. After unsuccessful attempts to recover the funds from Greene-Thapedi, the government brought this lawsuit. The district court held that the government filed its claim within the allowable time and that it was entitled to recoup most of the refund it had issued to Greene-Thapedi. We affirm.
