An Atlanta, Georgia, based tax return preparer pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud, announced the Justice Department’s Tax Division. According to court documents, Cheryl Singleton, 29, owned and operated Advanced Tax Services, a tax preparation business with multiple locations throughout the Atlanta area. From 2012 through 2015, Singleton and her employees filed false tax returns that fraudulently inflated clients’ refunds. In addition, Singleton and her employees falsely advised individuals that they could qualify for a $1,000 government stimulus payment. Singleton and others used these individuals’ personal identification information to electronically file false income tax returns in those individuals’ names, without their knowledge or consent. Court documents further allege that Singleton used healthcare financing credit cards held in the names of other individuals to fraudulently obtain payment for cosmetic dental care services. DOJ
