Louisiana tax firm shut down in federal suit

*United States v. Ann M. Williams, etc. 3:13-cv-00221
|The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana has permanently prohibited Ann Williams, owner of tax preparation firm Ann's Tax Service, from preparing federal returns for clients. According to a government complaint, the firm repeatedly slanted customers' tax liability by misreporting business income, exaggerating and fabricating business expenses, and falsely claiming the earned-come credit. The government estimates that as much as $2.2 million in tax revenue was lost as a result of the fraud.
While Williams and her firm did not admit to the allegations brought against them, they agreed to the civil injunction order issued on April 10 by Judge James J. Brady. The U.S. Attorney's Office of the Middle District of Louisiana acted as local counsel for the lawsuit.In its annual "Dirty Dozen Tax Scams" list, which lists a variety of illegal schemes that can cause trouble for taxpayers, the IRS warns citizens of return-preparer fraud. It is important to remember, especially for the 60 percent of taxpayers that rely on assistance from tax professionals, that taxpayers themselves are legally responsible for the information on their return no matter who prepares it.
