North Carolina tax preparer sent to prison for fraud conspiracy

Court documents and statements made in court show that from 2012 to 2017, Andrea Pasley and two others conspired to prepare fraudulent tax returns. They claimed false education credits or dependents or manipulated their clients’ income to qualify for larger earned income tax credits. Some clients were charged up to $3,000 for preparing returns.

An analysis estimates that the scheme caused a tax loss of approximately $1.2 million. Pasley was sentenced to almost two years in prison, and her co-conspirators, Karen Jones and Audrey Odom, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the IRS. They were sentenced earlier this year to 22 months and 15 months in prison respectively.
