taxesDURANT — The federal government has asked a Mississippi court to permanently bar a woman from preparing federal income tax returns for others.

The U.S. Justice Department says in a news release that Danee Aikens prepared federal income tax returns under the name “Comprotax Service” from an office in Durant.

The complaint alleges that Aikens prepared returns that overstated income, including by reporting fictitious household help income, in order to increase the amount of her customers’ claim to the Earned Income Tax Credit.

The complaint also alleges that Aikens prepared returns that falsely claimed a refundable education credit on behalf of her clients.

The complaint says the loss to the government from Aikens’ returns from 2009 through 2012 could exceed $7 million.

A phone number listed for the business was disconnected yesterday.
