According to court documents and statements in court, in early 2011, Daniel Heggins, 44, and Joan Clark operated Guarantor Manufactures Inc.

The intended loss of the conspiracy exceeded $4 million. Heggins also charged GMI’s clients bogus filing fees of $2,500 to $5,000 in order to prepare and file the fraudulent returns. Heggins and Clark pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States in November 2015. DOJ
