Six tax preparers who live in and around Chicago were charged on Monday with tax fraud by the state of Illinois.
Those charged include Renata Zaczek of Bridgeview; John De Helean, Danuta Dossou, Lope T. Hilado, Jaime Mireles and Ashim K. Roychowdhury of Chicago. Each was charged with one count of forgery. This felony is punishable by two to five years in prison and a $25,000 fine.
The Illinois State Attorney General and State Revenue Director announced the charges, and said all six knowingly falsified tax returns with wrong figures as to total income.
