Justice Department Sues to Shut Down Mississippi Tax Return Preparer

The United States has requested that the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi permanently bar a Greenville, Mississippi, man from preparing federal income tax returns for others, the Justice Department announced today.

According to the complaint, Nathaniel Kimble has prepared tax returns under the business name Kimble Tax Services in Greenville from 2010 through the present.  The complaint alleges that Kimble learned how to prepare tax returns by working with Alice Mobley.  Mobley, who was sentenced to serve 75 months in prison after pleading guilty to three charges related to her tax return practices in Alabama, admitted in her criminal case that she conspired with employees of Kimble Tax Services to file tax returns she knew were fraudulent.  In this regard, the complaint alleges that Kimble knowingly prepared federal income tax returns for customers that understated the customers’ tax liability and overstated the refunds they claimed by inflating or fabricating Earned Income Tax Credits that his customers were not eligible to take.

In the past decade, the department’s Tax Division has obtained more than 500 injunctions to stop tax fraud promoters and tax return preparers.  Information about these cases is available on the Justice Department website . An alphabetical listing of persons enjoined from preparing returns and promoting tax schemes can be found on this page .  If you believe that one of the enjoined persons or businesses may be violating an injunction, please contact the Tax Division with details.
