Kansas Return Preparer Sentenced to Prison for Preparing Fraudulent Tax Returns
A Kansas City, Kansas return preparer was sentenced to serve 27 months in prison today, announced Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stuart M. Goldberg of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney Thomas Beall for the District of Kansas.
According to documents filed with the court, Antoine Dorsey owned and operated Day-1 Tax Service, a tax preparation business in Kansas City. From 2009 through 2012, Dorsey reported fictitious business income on his clients’ returns to qualify them for the earned income tax credit, and claim refunds to which they were not entitled. Dorsey caused a tax loss to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of approximately $74,487.
