DOJA Colorado tax preparer who ignored an injunction that barred him from preparer federal returns for others has been jailed. Gerardo Herrera, who operates in Denver, has been incarcerated for continuing to operate two tax offices even though Senior District Court Judge John L. Kane had issued the order on January 7.

The Department of Justice had sued Herrara on September 1 alleging that he and his firm had prepared and filed fraudulent tax returns for at least the last three years. He operated a firm called El Lobo Multiservicios Professionales.

Herrara had been ordered to provide a list of his customers to the United States and to notify those customers of the injunction within 45 days of its issuance. Witnesses from the Internal Revenue Service, who visited his offices, testified about his contuing practice.

He will remain jailed until he complies the court order by halting practice, surrenders a copy of his Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and posts a copy of the injunction in his place of business.
