BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama tax preparer has pleaded guilty to filing false returns on behalf of his clients and himself.
U.S. Attorney Prim Escalona said 27-year-old Jamichael D. Whiteside, of Gadsden, entered the guilty plea Thursday in federal court.
A local news out reports Whiteside entered the plea to one count of aiding or assisting in the preparation of a false tax return and making and subscribing a false tax return before U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor. Escalona’s office said Whiteside’s false returns resulted in a tax loss of more than $140,000.
A sentencing date has not been announced.
