Feds indict over false tax returns

A 49-year-old Fort Wayne man is under federal indictment, accused of making false statements on tax returns six times.

According to court documents unsealed Monday, Kelvin B. Walker is accused of making fraudulent statements on tax returns for a number of individuals on six different occasions in 2010 and 2011.

On the returns, Walker listed phony education expenses and charitable contributions that resulted in refunds of $3,525 to $9,913, according to court documents.

The indictment was handed up by a federal grand jury in Fort Wayne last week but was unsealed Monday after his arrest, according to court records.
