TurboTax E-File Scam May Land Milwaukee Woman in Jail
Sep 16th 2003
A 24-year-old Milwaukee woman awaits sentencing after using TurboTax and the Internal Revenue Service's free file online tax preparation system to file 10 fake tax returns in an attempt to collect several thousand dollars in refunds.
Shana Cooper pleaded guilty last Friday to four counts of forgery and one count of attempted theft-false representation. She also pleaded guilty to fraudulently accepting a Wisconsin homestead tax credit. She faces a possible 16 years in prison. She also faces tax evasion charges in Indiana.
Ms. Cooper filed the bogus tax returns from her home computer and from computers at the Milwaukee Public Library, using real employer identification numbers of Wisconsin businesses for identifying fake wages paid to fake employees.
She attempted to hoodwink federal and state tax agencies out of $13,267 and successfully received $6,564 in refunds before getting caught. The refund money was deposited in accounts at various banks that were opened in Ms. Cooper's name.
Ms. Cooper's sentencing hearing in Milwaukee County Circuit Court is scheduled for October 23.
Although Ms. Cooper used the electronic tax filing system to carry out her fraudulent tax filing, IRS spokeswoman Donna Migazzi offered assurance that it's actually easier to defraud the government on paper returns than it is with electronic returns.
Yes and about the same as you
555 Federal. If it would ever fucking get here.
I've used it for the last couple of years.
The last 2 years i've gotten reviewed because something was wonky with my union contributions. This year I'll pay an accountant.
i don't get refunds!
I use an accountant. Why I do not know. At this point I only have my kids and small amount of mortgage interest. I guess paranoia of an audit is etched in my head.
Refund? I pay in and it really blows when you write the five figure check out, very painful. If everyone wrote a check out for federal taxes every week there would be a revolution. yes I use turbo tax.
I've been using an accountant for the last 11 years, but he wanted to charge me 225 this year. I looked at the form, and said fuck it, I'll take a chance with Turbo Tax.
I'm a happy customer.
I have an accountant. My company is an S-Corp. So my refund or what I have to pay is always tied to the net profits of the company. So sometimes I get a big return and others I have to write a big check.
Turbo tax for 16 years. After first year it's a breeze because it imports all the information from year before. 2K fed 200 state.
I've used TT for the past 15 years. I owed about $2K this year in part due to my investment income (bond interest/stock dividends/capital gains).
I always make sure to set my withholding allowances high to ensure that I have the least amount of tax taken out and owe some money when my return is filed. My hair-brained 'theory' is that owing a few bucks keeps me off the 'list' and my return is not looked at unlike the people that get refunds.
'Pupkin's Income Tax Theory'
i usually get about $30 back from the feds and owe the state around $20. it's almost perfect.
Think it has something to do with your name?
Nahh... my brother SneakyPete never get's reviewed
Just so you know, some of these programs use your last year's refund as a security question to allow someone with your other info access to your account.
H&R block. It's not particularly any better, I just used it last couple of years so I stuck with it for ease of porting things over to the next. Small business version. It could be worse. Taxes are a nightmare if you own investment property or stocks/etfs/mutual funds/other instruments held outside of retirement portfolios. Once made the mistake of owning some commodities partnership ETF something or other that took about an hour to hunt down every stupid thing they wanted, plus it was part foreign so that added even more time. And god help you if you have carryforwards.
