Your Naughty Tax Preparer of the Day

After being indicted last week on 35 counts of aiding and assisting in the preparation of false and fraudulent tax returns and two counts of willfully failing to file personal income tax returns, Ametra Q. Wooden should probably change the name of her tax preparation business to F Plus Tax Experts & Financial Services, amirite?

According to the keepers of the halls of Justice:

Wooden owned and operated A Plus Tax Experts & Financial Services, a tax preparation firm with locations in Birmingham and Jasper, Alabama. The indictment alleges that Wooden knowingly and willfully aided and assisted in the preparation of 35 fraudulent tax returns on behalf of clients for the tax years 2014 through 2017. In 2014 and 2016, Wooden allegedly failed to file personal income tax returns despite being required to do so by law.

If convicted, Wooden faces a maximum of three years in prison on each of the aiding and assisting bogus tax return charges and a $250,000 fine, and up to a year on each of the failing to file charges and a $100,000 fine.
