A Brampton tax preparer has been sentenced to six months house arrest over a fraudulent tax scheme that used fake charitable receipts to reduce his clients’ federal taxes by more than $100,000.

Dele Afolabi, also known as Afolabi Dele, pleaded guilty to tax evasion after false donation claims were found in a Canada Revenue Agency investigation, the CRA said.

Abundance Grace Investments filed $373,364 of false charitable donations over 59 income tax returns prepared between 2006 and 2008.

Afolabi pleaded guilty to the charges in a Brampton court on May 1, and was sentenced to six months of house arrest and a $10,000 fine.
