Four found guilty in tax fraud scam
Now that you have your W-2s in hand, here’s a reminder about what happens if you cheat on your taxes or come up with a scheme to get others to do so.
Four people have been found guilty of multiple counts of filing or causing false claims for refunds to be filed with the IRS. They were the promoters and recruiters for a scheme, explained United States Attorney Maxwell Wood for the Middle District of Georgia, that recruited taxpayers to file false amended tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service. Subsequently, the taxpayers would claim tax refunds to which they were not entitled ranging from $33,913 up to $89,612.
