2 tax preparers barred from touching anyone else’s returns
Two tax preparers accused of swindling the federal government out of millions are not allowed to touch another person’s federal income taxes ever again. A permanent injunction was filed Tuesday against Stacy Middleton and George Jenkins, both of them tax preparers for MBM Tax Services. Middleton worked out of the Charleston office on King Street. Jenkins worked out of the company’s Blythewood office. The company’s website was no longer available on Wednesday. In its place, a message stated the website domain name had expired on July 16 and is pending renewal or deletion. The federal government had previously filed an injunction on Tax Day, seeking to stop Middleton and Jenkins. Criminal charges have not been filed against the two men. But they may have cost the federal government $55 million, according to federal authorities.
