Many taxpayers in Georgia and throughout the country are charged with fraud each year. When the person charged with tax fraud is a tax preparer, the situation becomes even more complicated. A judge in Fulton County recently allowed someone whose tax filings are under investigation to continue her tax preparation business.
A Hapeville councilwoman and her daughter are being investigated for alleged tax fraud by the Georgia Department of Revenue. Officials claim that the pair were being scrutinized after a local television station had questioned thousands of returns they had filed. There was speculation that the amount of the returns their clients had received were inflated.
