Tax Prep Firm and Affiliates Face More Legal Action

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Middle Tennessee filed a civil injunction suit in Nashville against Fields Mo' Money Taxes, making it the latest affiliate of the Memphis-based Mo' Money Taxes tax preparation firm to face legal action. The Justice Department issued a news release stating the suit alleges defendants Toney Fields and Trumekia Shaw “intentionally prepare and file fraudulent federal income tax returns to obtain improper tax refunds for customers.” It says the firm defrauded the federal government of more than $5million in 2011.
