Tax preparer gets 5 years in falsifying returns case

THE BRONX - A Bronx tax preparer has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for falsifying tax returns that generated more than $1 million in undeserved refunds for his clients.

A Southern District Court judge says Davis Jackson invented phony businesses, inflated deductions and created fake dependents using personal information of children who had died.

Jackson will now spend 63 months behind bars.
