The Justice Department’s Tax Division announced that a Brooklyn, New York, tax return preparer was sentenced to 36 months in prison following her guilty plea on Sept. 21, 2015, to two counts of aiding and assisting in the preparation of false income tax returns. Awilda Rosario, 40, owned and operated a tax preparation business in Brooklyn called Edujas Multiservices Corporation. Rosario prepared false individual income tax returns for clients for tax years 2008 through 2013. She attached false schedules that reported business losses the taxpayers did not incur and attached schedules that reported inflated or fictitious deductions. She also attached forms claiming fictitious education and fuel tax credits that the taxpayers were not entitled to receive. After the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) revoked the Electronic Filing Identification Number (EFIN) for Edujas Multiservices Corporation, Rosario obtained at least two different EFINs and continued to prepare and submit false tax returns for her clients that listed a different paid tax return preparer and tax preparer firm.
