Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom announced Wednesday that 46 year old Robin Kimberly Magee of St. Paul, has been charged with 11 felonies pertaining to income tax related violations. Those charges involve the tax years 2004-2007.
Investigators for the Minnesota Department of Revenue allege that Ms. Magee, who is a law professor at Hamline University, failed to file tax returns in a timely manner and failed to pay taxes owed for tax years 2004-2007. The charges also allege that when Ms. Magee filed tax returns for 2004, 2005 and 2006 in early 2009, she failed to report taxable interest income, failed, to report income from the sale of stocks or bonds, and falsely claimed losses from previously disallowed business expenses.
These are only allegations at this point. If the state shows that she did file returns two to four years late, and still got them wrong, it might not go over well with her former students. Look for the state to ask whether she turns in semester grades on time.
