Zangardi, tasked by the North Carolina Department of Revenue to handle sales tax matters, had associated companies that were obliged to collect and convey Sales tax. However, these funds were not appropriately remitted to the Revenue Department, resulting in legal consequences.

Following her arrest, Zangardi has been released on an unsecured bond of $50,000 and is expected to appear in court for her indictment hearing next week. Pending her trial, Zangardi’s attorney advises against public comment, reminding everyone that individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
