Alabama Woman Charged With Tax Filing Fraud
An Alabama woman who formerly ran a tax service company is being charged with 179 counts of various charges relating to a tax fraud scheme.
Alice Mobley, of Monroeville, Alabama, and the former owner of Preyear Tax and Check Cashing LLC, was recently charged with an additional 99 counts relating to identity theft, filing false tax returns and mortgage fraud, according to a report.
The filing scheme occurred during income tax years 2007 through 2009, according to Alabama news provider the Atmore Advance. Mobley had offices in Alabama, Mississippi and Texas. The company's offices were raided last March by the Internal Revenue Service.
Mobley also has been connected to mortgage fraud with Wells Fargo and CitiBank, the news source said. Her employees are being charged for claiming refunds for clients by fraudulent means.
The company had offices in Alabama, Mississippi and Texas, the news source said. If convicted, Mobley could receive a sentence of more than 30 years in prison. Currently, she is scheduled to go to court in May, but her lawyer may try to lengthen that time period because of the new charges.
