A California woman pleaded guilty to making and subscribing a false tax return.
Deborah Gwen Orrey, 51, of Anderson, California, was the owner and operator of Affordable Tax, Bankruptcy, and Bookkeeping. From 2014 to 2017, Orrey submitted falsified tax returns to the IRS for her own tax returns and also the tax returns that she filed on her clients’ behalf.
Orrey owed to the IRS an additional $112,083. She split the refunds due to her clients without her clients’ knowledge, causing a portion of the clients’ refunds to be deposited to her own bank account.
