A federal court in Columbia, South Carolina, has permanently barred a Liberty Tax Service franchise owner from preparing federal tax returns for others, the Justice Department announced. The civil injunction order prohibits Christopher Paul Haynes from acting as a federal tax return preparer and from supervising, managing or employing federal tax return preparers. In addition, Haynes must provide the government with a list of all customers for whom Haynes or his business prepared a tax return for any tax year from 2010 to present. Haynes agreed to the civil injunction order entered against him. According to the government’s complaint, Haynes and his employees prepared tax returns that included false or inflated income and expenses on Schedule C (Profit or Loss From Business), bogus dependents, false filing statuses and improper unreimbursed employee business expenses.
