Another 17 Boeing workers have been arrested on state tax-fraud charges.
The arrests bring the total of arrests to 30 since last month.
The workers filed fraudulent W-4 forms, claiming to be exempt from state income taxes when they were not and then failed to file tax returns, according to the S.C. Department of Revenue.
Generally, workers can only claim an exemption from state taxes if they were refunded all taxes that were withheld during the previous year and expect to owe no current taxes.
Boeing makes the 787 Dreamliner commercial plane at its North Charleston campus and employs 8,159 people at its South Carolina facilities. A spokeswoman has said the company is cooperating with the investigation and suspended the workers who were charged.
Each of those arrested Monday faces three or four charges for tax years 2011 to 2014. Each charge carries a $10,000 fine and/or up to five years in prison.
