Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Shares Story of Wayward Tax Preparer

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR shares stories most people don’t hear about to inspire taxpayers to seek the services of reputable, law-abiding tax preparers and steer clear of those who make outrageous promises.

Fairhope, AL, August 29, 2017: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published a blog on his website entitled “Tax Time Made Dad Go Bad.” In his latest blog, Mr. Willis relates a true story about an unscrupulous tax preparer.

Willis writes, “As a tax attorney I hear stories and come across news in professional journals that the majority of people never hear or see.” He continues, “And, trust me, many of the stories are difficult to believe, but they actually happen.”

According to Willis, “I recently read about a tax preparer who was involved in defrauding the IRS by preparing and filing personal income tax returns listing false dependents.” He elaborates, “It appears the man used his own children, as well as other children, on his clients’ personal returns as dependents to inflate his clients’ refunds by thousands of dollars.” Willis confides, “I don’t think tax time made this dad go bad. It seems he may simply have had a natural tendency to stretch the boundaries.”

“The tax preparer,” says Willis, “charged his clients an average of $1,500 for each false dependent he put on their return.” He continues adding, “Not surprisingly, his clients were audited and when they were, the tax preparer instructed “at least two of the clients to lie to IRS agents about their relationship with the false dependents.”

According to Willis, “Taxpayers who participate in these types of fraud schemes may end up facing charges as well as the preparer. In this instance,” writes Willis, “the preparer was sentenced to a minimum of two years imprisonment and up to a $250,000 fine for aggravated ID theft.”
