Atlanta, GA (Apr 14) – Entering a guilty plea in connection to one count of aiding and assisting the filing of a false return, a violation of Title 26, of the United States Code, Section 7206(2), Patsy D. Baker faces sentencing in Georgia.
Baker, purporting to be a tax preparer and owner/operator of Elite Tax Service, faces up to three years in prison and a potential $250,000 fine.
Operating out of Kazzmo’s, a restaurant in Eatonton, Georgia, Baker “falsely represented to the Internal Revenue Service that the information contained in the tax returns for various taxpayers was accurate, when in truth and fact as the defendant well knew, the information contained therein was false.”
Charges were brought against Baker after investigation by the FBI, IRS Criminal Investigation Division, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Assistant U.S. States Attorney Harry J. Fox, Jr., prosecuted the case. The Honorable C. Ashley Royal, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia will over see Baker’s sentencing.
