LADSON, SC (WCSC) - COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - A Ladson woman was indicted in federal court Wednesday on charges of using a false IRS document.

According to U.S. Attorney William Nettles, Jenene Gourdine, 38, knowingly used a fabicated IRS form that falsely stated that the IRS had released its tax lien on property owned by her spouse when, in fact, the IRS had not released the tax lien.

She used the form in June, 2006.

Nettles said in a release that the case was investigated by agents of the Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration.
