dojA Nashville, Tenn.-based tax preparer faces a variety of federal charges stemming from alleged fraud on her own tax returns and on those she prepared for clients. Tracy Brown, who operated Total Tax Services, from her residence, has been indicted on six counts of assisting in the preparation of false tax returns, two counts of filing false personal tax returns and one count of obstructing the due administration of the internal revenue laws.

She faces a possible maximum sentence of 27 years, three on each count. If convicted, Brown would also be subject to substantial monetary penalties, supervised release and restitution.

The indictement alleges that between 2006 and 2010 Brown used a variety of bogus deductions, including medical expenses, charitable contributions and un-reimbursed employee expenses, to boost client refunds.

The Justice Department also claims after one client was audited, Brown submitted fake documentation to the Internal Revenue Service and under-reported the gross receipts and sales figures on her personal income tax returns for the years 2008 and 2009.
