Ex-Tax Office Manager Sentenced

From WESB NewsRadio1490

The former office manager for the Elk County Tax Claim Bureau has pleaded guilty to stealing nearly $50,000 in payments to the bureau.

51-year-old Stephanie Kilhoffer was sentenced to six to 24 months in prison, and must pay restitution, which includes $8,000 for an audit that uncovered the thefts.

Kilhoffer took the money between March of 2007 and May of 2009 by not depositing money people had paid for their taxes. The investigation started after people who paid their taxes, and had receipts to prove it, got notices saying they hadn’t paid and started complaining.
