Former state revenue employee sentenced for tax fraud

It’s always good to have someone on the inside. At least that’s how Nancy and Laurie Sondrall must have felt. Nancy’s sister and Laurie’s aunt, Pamela Marie Dellis, was providing them with ill-gotten booty from the Minnesota Department of Revenue.

Dellis had cooked up a false tax refund scam that had the mother-daughter team apply for and receive refunds.

Dellis, of Lindstrom, created ap­­proxi­­mately 200 false tax returns in her sister’s and niece’s names. Once the two received the money, they split it three ways. Revenue de­­partment officials estimate the three got away with $1.9 million before they were indicted on tax fraud and money laundering charges.

Note: Dellis was able to get away with her scheme because she proc­­essed payments with minimal oversight.
