Justice Seeks to Shut Down Tax Prep Group

U.S. Justice Department attorneys were in Memphis federal court this week seeking to shut down a Memphis-based business that operates tax preparation companies. The civil action was filed Tuesday against Mo’ Money Taxes and four other connected businesses: MoneyCo USA LLC, Caymau Service Bureau LLC, Marquis Taxes and Southern King Taxes. The filing also names two business owners and a manager as defendants. The Justice Department alleges that the companies promote and encourage “the preparation of false and fraudulent income tax returns,” the Memphis Daily News reports.
