Milford Woman Pleads Guilty to Tax Fraud

A Milford woman has pleaded guilty to tax fraud, theft and perjury.

The Division of Revenue announced Thursday that 46-year-old Georgeina Ranshaw pleaded guilty in Kent County Superior Court.

Ranshaw owned Nurses on the Go, which served elderly and disabled individuals needing personal care, and operated Littleman's Cleaning Service. Officials say she grossed $600,000 in earnings from the two businesses, but failed to file a tax return.

Officials say Ranshaw admitted that she used her grandson's Social Security number on a business license application for the cleaning business, concealing her ownership.

As a result of the plea, officials say Ranshaw was ordered not to be involved at all in the home health care business or the care or guardianship of the elderly.

Renshaw's sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 27.

Those "cleaning" services are what clean out your family's prized possessions that you never get to see.

Hope she gets a long one!

It gives a whole new meaning to the term "cleaning up", doesn't it?!

I wonder about the specifics of the tax fraud. She failed to file taxes on two business, and I wonder if this is what got her.

Bad guardians fail to file taxes on purpose, so the money will be there for their taking.

And what's the IRS doing about that?

This is the second instance I've heard of visiting nurses turning out bad.

Bet a lot more will come out on this story. Ranshaw was probably up to much more bad stuff.

Keep digging, IRS and authorities, I bet you'll find more.

She even exploited her own grandson - for shame!

At least they've pulled her from being a guardian.

That's a start.
