Wellford, SC (FOX Carolina) - A Spartanburg County woman has been arrested after the South Carolina Department of Revenue says she assisted in the preparation of false tax returns. 

According to arrest warrants, 47-year-old Susan M. Campbell, helped create multiple false tax returns from 2014-2017. Warrants say the returns were for a variety of different taxpayers, 17 in total, totaling almost $500,000 in losses.
