Two more indicted in Tampa on tax fraud charges

TAMPA — Tressa Vanessa Guy, 41, collected federal assistance to pay her rent last year, records show.

But a 17-count indictment alleges that she and boyfriend Brian Eugene Simmons, 33, also participated in a scheme to collect $2.7 million in fraudulent federal tax refunds.

The two were arrested Wednesday on charges of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, access device fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Court records do not yet estimate the actual IRS loss.
