Garland Chiropractic Owners Sentenced to More Than Three Years for Tax Fraud

United States Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Texas, July 30, 2020

Two owners of a Garland chiropractic clinic were sentenced yesterday to 37 months in federal prison and ordered to repay approximately $350,000 for tax fraud, announced U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Erin Nealy Cox.

Tammy Boulyaphonh, 51, was convicted by a federal jury on all five counts against her, including one count of conspiring to defraud the United States by underreporting income and four counts of filings false tax returns in February. Her husband, 59-year-old Khamlor Boulyaphonh had pleaded guilty to similar counts days before trial. The defendants were sentenced yesterday before U.S. District Judge Jane J. Boyle.

“This sentencing is a reminder that there are consequences to criminal tax evasion that include going to prison, being branded a convicted felon for the rest of their lives, and paying back all of the taxes owed,” said Special Agent in Charge Tamera Cantu of the IRS Criminal Investigation Dallas Field Office. “This should resonate with those contemplating similar fraudulent actions.”
