PHOENIX – Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and the Arizona Department of Revenue announced a State Grand Jury returned a 19-count indictment against Jalisco Corp aka Jalisco Auto Sales, and its owner-operator, Maria Gutierrez.
The indictment accuses Gutierrez of falsifying Jalisco Auto Sales’ transaction privilege or sales tax returns between January 1, 2015 and July 26, 2016, by underreporting the number of cars sold. It is alleged that Jalisco Auto Sales charged its customers for sales tax but failed to remit the collected taxes to the Arizona Department of Revenue.
