Louisa A. Edmonds, age 44, of Elkton Kentucky, was sentenced to 41 months in prison followed by a 3 year period of supervised release on Tuesday, by Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell.

Edmonds plead guilty on August 29, 2012 to filing false income tax returns for 2005 through 2009, for herself, that contained various false deductions including those for dependents, Schedule A medical and dental expenses, charitable contributions, attorney and accounting fees, and fraudulent credits including the Child Tax Credit, the Additional Child Tax Credit, the First-Time Homebuyer Credit, and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Additionally, Edmonds admitted that she prepared false income tax returns for others that claimed deductions and credits that they were not entitled to receive.  These fraudulent items include false dependents, fraudulent filing status, First-Time Homebuyer Credit, Earned Income Tax Credit, and Child Tax Credit.  Edmonds agreed to an entry of an order of restitution in the amount of $37,139.00 to the IRS.

During the hearing Edmonds also admitted that she knowingly used the identification of another person without his/her permission to make a false claim against the United States by filing a false income tax return with the IRS.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Bryan Calhoun and was investigated by the IRS division of Criminal Investigation.
