Trotwood woman pleads guilty to preparing false tax returns

Between February of 2012 and April of 2015, Angela Redd held herself as a tax preparer in the Dayton area and charged up to $500 per return.


She would prepare returns using false information she created such as fictitious Schedule C income and education expenses. The false information used on the returns caused a tax loss to the IRS of $47,183.

As part of her guilty plea, Redd has agreed to pay $47,183 in restitution to the IRS, faces a maximum prison sentence of five years and a fine up to $250,000.

Her sentencing has been scheduled for August 9.
