— Tax preparer Vickie McNabb was federally indicted for allegedly inflating the tax returns of her clients and stealing part of those refunds.
The 55-year-old Franklin woman was charged in Dayton’s U.S. District Court with 11 counts of aiding and assisting in the preparation and presentation of fraudulent income tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
McNabb was arrested and scheduled for an initial appearance in court on Tuesday.
The indictment alleged that between February 2011 and March 2012, McNabb prepared fraudulent income tax returns for taxpayers that contained inflated expenses.
The indictment said McNabb knew that the taxpayers were not entitled to claim the additional expenses, which caused the IRS to issue larger income tax refunds for the 2010 and 2011 tax years and an IRS loss of $29,550.
The crime is punishable by a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.
“As we approach the end of the tax filing season, those who might consider preparing false tax returns should be aware of the extremely negative consequences as evidenced today,” Frank S. Turner II, Acting Special Agent in Charge, IRS Criminal Investigation, said in a press release.
“Today’s indictment of Ms. McNabb again emphasizes that the IRS and U.S. Attorney’s office will continue their aggressive pursuit of those who would attempt to defraud America’s tax system.”

CENTERVILLE — More than 100 faith leaders gathered Saturday at the Normandy United Methodist Church for a safety and security seminar.
The Ohio Crime Prevention Association led the program focusing on the proactive steps houses of worship can take for their protection.
“It’s kind of an all hazards program, to give them a view of things we can consider, what can we improve upon. Then we give them the knowledge and resources for these plans to be better secure and make it safer,” said John Davis, a Centerville police officer who also serves as vice president of the Ohio Crime Prevention Association.
