New inductee of the Tax Preparers' Hall of Shame goes to Antoinette Djonet
Antoinette Djonret, a former Premier Tax preparer, has pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns using stolen identities, according to reports. In August, a federal grand jury in Montgomery indicted Djonret and five others for conspiring to file false tax returns using stolen identities and various other charges. According to the Department of Justice, Djonret had earlier been charged with making false claims in a criminal complaint that was filed on February 22 and in an indictment filed on March 28. According to court documents, Djonret obtained stolen identities from state of Alabama databases, and she and her sister then filed false tax returns using the stolen identities and directed the false tax returns to prepaid debit cards. In total, the defendants filed over 800 false tax returns and requested over $1.2 million in tax refunds.
Congrats goes out to Djonret. Thanks for making tax preparers look bad. Was it worth the money.....nope!
