Two more defendants in a massive fraud scheme against the IRS and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) have been sentenced to roughly 3 years in prison each.  Using his California-based tax preparation business, Mana Tax Services, Thanh Rudin and co-conspirator Seir Havana submitted false income tax returns for at least nine professional athletes, causing $19 million in losses to the IRS.  Rudin and Havana then submitted false applications for PPP loans on behalf of small businesses, shell companies, and other business entities, causing millions more in losses to the PPP.  In October 2022, Rudin’s brother, Quin Rudin, was sentenced to 10 years for his role in the scheme.  USAO EDVA
