CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
A 29-year-old tax return preparer is facing five years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of filing false claims for fraudulent income tax refunds with the IRS.
According to authorities, Tiffany Parish trained in 2008 on how to prepare false federal income tax returns so her clients could receive the largest income tax refund possible while an employee at an unnamed company. Parish allegedly admitted she prepared false claims for income tax refunds because she expected to receive part of her client's refunds once the checks were cashed.
Parish allegedly also filed false items on her own income tax returns from 2007 through 2010. According to authorities, she also requested and often received a portion of the income tax refunds which were generated from the false returns. Parish would negotiate the amount with her clients and would receive $200 for one false dependent, $500 for two false dependents and $700 for three or more false dependents.
She prepared at least 365 false income tax returns in 2008 and 2009 resulting in nearly a $2 million loss to the IRS. "Law abiding citizens expect the government to hold accountable those who use deceit and fraud to line their pockets with money, especially when that money represents stolen federal taxes," said Darryl Williams, Special Agent in Charge, IRS, Criminal Investigation, Cincinnati Field Office. "No one is entitled to an undeserved windfall, and refunds should only be issued to taxpayers who are entitled to them."
Parish faces a maximum prison sentence of five years and a fine of up to $250,000. She was released on bond and will be sentenced in February.
