This is absurd.

The penalty for a preparer asserting a position in a tax return which is unlikely to be sustained is $5000 or half the income derived, whichever is greater.

They should be assessing Dorothea Alexander $5000 per return, and criminally prosecuting her for fraud.

Oh, and that $5000 per return? It is NOT dischargeable in federal bankruptcy court.

A tax preparer should be an aggressive advocate for his clients' position. He's supposed to ensure that the client pays the least amount of tax that is legally justifiable, not a penny less, not a penny more.

Additionally, the state should take a close look at Pawn Plus, and determine whether their license to operate a pawn shop should be revoked.
