MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A federal judge has issued a permanent injunction prohibiting the owners and a former manager of a tax preparation service from running such a business and from preparing tax returns for other people.
The Justice Department said Memphis-based Mo' Money Taxes owners Markey Granberry and Derrick Robinson and former manager Eumora Reese agreed to the injunction without admitting allegations in a lawsuit against them.
U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson in Memphis signed the injunction on Wednesday.
A phone number listed on the company's website was not working Wednesday.
The Justice Department said Mo'Money at one time operated as many as 300 offices in 18 states.
The government complaint alleges Granberry, Robinson and Reese encouraged preparers to falsely claim earned-income credit, claim improper filing status, claim bogus education credits and charge deceptive fees.
