Apr 4, 2013

Federal prosecutors say a Groveport woman has pleaded guilty to charges of filing dozens of phony income tax returns.

Prosecutors say Akiesha Ball was working as a tax preparer when she filed nearly 80 false returns for herself and others, inflating salaries and creating deductions to fleece the IRS out of 400-thousand dollars.
