SHERMAN -- An international technology company is suing a Texas man, alleging he did not follow an income tax agreement.
AXA Technology Services America Inc., based in New Jersey, filed a lawsuit Sept. 10 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Jaypaul S. Ahluwalia of Frisco, alleging breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
According to the complaint, on June 22, 2010, AXA entered into a contract with Ahluwalia ensuring that, while he was working in India, he would need to refund the plaintiff any amount of overpaid taxes. The suit says AXA regularly overpaid taxes each year to avoid a penalty.
The lawsuit states while the defendant received a refund in each tax year from 2010 to 2012, he did not repay AXA. The plaintiff says Ahluwalia owes them $125,000.
AXA Technology seek actual and exemplary damages, interest, attorney fees and court costs. It is represented by attorney Jacob W. Stasny of Sumner, Schick & Pace LLP in Dallas.
