Mother, daughter tax preparers indicted
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – A federal grand jury has indicted a woman and her mother who ran a tax-preparation business in Alabama.
Authorities say 38-year-old Katie Green-Horn, owner of Katie’s Tax Service in York, and her mother, 60-year-old Sandra Green, who worked at KTS, were indicted Friday for conspiring to defraud the U.S. between January 2011 and April 2014 by obstructing the IRS in its collection of income taxes.
Acting U.S. Attorney Robert Posey, in a news release, says the defendants prepared fraudulent returns claiming false education and residential energy credits, false business losses and inflated business expenses that illegally boosted refund amounts.
The indictment also charges Green-Horn with three counts of making a false return on her own tax forms for 2011 through 2013. It says she knowingly omitted nearly $700,000 in income.
