Sephora settles in Indiana tax fraud case

Sephora has paid out US$159,349 to the State of Indiana in order to settle a dispute over tax fraud, according to a report published by The Indiana Lawyer.

The LVMH-owned retailer stood accused of making false statements regarding its failure to collect gross retail taxes on shipping and handling fees for online sales to shoppers based in the state, in violation of the Indiana False Claims Act.

“My office works tirelessly on behalf of Hoosier taxpayers to root out fraud against the government and recover taxpayer monies,” Attorney General Curtis Hill told The Indiana Lawyer. “Settlements such as this one send a message to all business entities that we will hold them accountable for following the law and being truthful.”
