Dighton Tax Preparer Sentenced for Filing False Tax Returns
JANUARY 10, 2014

BOSTON – A Dighton man was sentenced for falsifying his own personal income tax returns.

David J. Woods, 65, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Patti B. Saris to six months in prison, six months home confinement and a $3,000 fine. In June 2013, Woods pleaded guilty to filing false individual tax returns which resulted in the underreporting of over $500,000 in income from his tax preparation service.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and John G. Collins, Special Agent in Charge of the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation in Boston, made the announcement today. The case was prosecuted by Lori J. Holik of Ortiz’s Economic Crimes Unit.
