images (6)Federal Court Permanently Bars Michigan Woman from Preparing Tax Returns Claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit
Tax Preparer Allegedly Prepared Returns Claiming Bogus Dependents and with Fabricated Business Income to Falsely Maximize Earned Income Credits
A federal court has permanently barred Crystal Ireland, of Detroit, who does business as Master Mind Preparation, from preparing federal tax returns that claim the earned income tax credit, the Justice Department announced today. The civil injunction order, to which Ireland consented, was signed by Judge Bernard Friedman of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

The complaint in the case alleged that Ireland failed to comply with due diligence requirements imposed by federal law on tax preparers who claim the earned income credit on customers’ returns. According to the complaint, Ireland fabricated businesses and reported fake business income on her customers’ tax returns in order to claim the maximum credit for them.

The complaint alleged that the Internal Revenue Service penalized Ireland in 2010 for failing to comply with federal law due diligence requirements, yet a 2011 follow-up investigation revealed ongoing failures and fraudulent claims. According to the complaint, Ireland prepared at least 2,300 returns from 2008 through 2011, with unusually high refund rates ranging from 97 to 99 percent for those years.

The permanent injunction order also bars Ireland from preparing forms Schedule C on which she knowingly fabricates income or expenses, preparing tax returns on which she knowingly claims a dependent that does not actually qualify as a dependent of the taxpayer, and preparing tax returns on which she fails to identify herself as the paid preparer or falsely identifies someone else as the paid preparer.

In the past decade the Justice Department’s Tax Division has obtained injunctions against hundreds of tax return preparers and tax-fraud promoters. Information about these cases is available on the Justice Department website.

    Good! They’re going after the tax preparers now! Since they want to file taxes knowing it’s criminal, they need to charge all their asses, especially the Miami people dem and if knew any of them, I’d be the first one to turn them in. Dem thief and wicked and make it problematic for people wanting to file their taxes when they already fraudulently filed in their names.
    Lock up every frigging one a dem. Give them 10 years minimum and this isn’t for this poor people trying to get some money by claiming their friends kids, this is about those frigging tax refund scammers.
    They seem to think the authorities are not onto them, but Uncle Sam likes to give ya’ll a long run so the ketch is ever the more sweet.

    my tax lady told me that people that fradulently filing child credit EIC will get their income tax audited just a matter of time for the IRS catch up with the tax filer. In order to claim a child on your income tax return the filer must show proof that the child lived in the same home as the filer for 6 months and also guardianship–its illegal to claim someone elses children on your tax return that doesnt live with you–but nuff people still ah do it…The ending is when dem get random audit dem haffi show proof of the children guadianship status/living and if dem nuh have it they will get FINE and REPAY the child credit-EIC and bar from filing for EIC for 10 years–the tax law. SO ALL WHO A FILE TAXES AND ON GOVT ASSISTANT AH MINE GUH PAY BACK SOME OR ALL THE GOVT TAX MONEY. AND THOSE WHO ILLEGALLY FILE PEOPLE PICKNEY PAN THEM TAXES JUST MEK SURE WHEN U FILE YOUR OWN KIDS U WILL NOT ABLE TO CLAIM DEM UNTIL THE TEN YEARS UP IF IRS AUDIT U AND U FOUND GUILTY CLAIMING PEOPLE CHILDREN–BARRED ……NUFF PEOPLE GUH LOSE DEM FILING PRIVILEDGES CLAIMING DEM OWNA PICKNEY IF U GET AUDIT…BE CAREFUL WAT U ASK FAH–U CAN RUN BUT CYAANT HIDE….MONEY DUN SPEND BY THE PICKNEY DEM MUMA AND THE TAX FILER HAFFI PAY ALL BACK. AH DEM LEFT WITH THE IRS BILL AND FRAUD CASE….

    Anonymous, they stupid. Frankly I think this is a big set up so they can’t file for their own kids and nuff people won’t be getting any money back for years. They think because they haven’t been caught yet, that IRS is not doing anything but the more incidence they have, the stronger is the case. They are prosecuting these people so let them continue. Eventually, only the people who have always filed for their own child/children will be able to get returns. No one else as they will enact their 10 year ban.

    A lot of people in Miami do not work, do not have jobs yet they wait for tax season to file returns in peoples names. Getting back hundreds of thousands of dollars. I just hope they know it’s federal crime and the penalty will be just as high as the amount of money they’re collecting.
