JAMAICA — An employee at the state Division of Motor Vehicles was arrested Monday and charged with falsifying documents in order to avoid paying her fair share of taxes on the Porsche she bought in Texas, authorities said.
Brooklyn resident Stacie Youman, 43, paid more than $17,700 for her used Porsche when she bought it from a Texas dealership back in April, according to the state inspector general’s office.
But when she went to register the car in Jamaica in July, she allegedly forged the dealer’s signature and claimed she paid only $2,000, bilking New York out of more than $1,300 in state transfer taxes, the IG said.
Youman was charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument, falsifying business records, offering a false instrument for filing and making a punishable false written statement.
If convicted, she faces up to seven years in prison, the Inspector General said.
