Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

Tax fraud helps no one, and this story shows it. A local woman was arrested this morning and is being charged with 50 counts of tax fraud. 

According to the IRS- Criminal Investigation Division, Cristina Gonzalez was arrested this morning on charges of tax evasion and aiding the the preparation of false tax returns.

A federal grand jury returned a 50-count indictment against Gonzalez on April 12, which lead to her arrest this morning.

Gonzalez is charged with 46 counts of willfully aiding and assisting in the preparation of false U.S. Income Tax Returns for others as well as four counts of willfully filing a false income tax return for herself.  The indictment alleges she knowingly filed her tax returns that underreported her income, resulting in a substantial tax due to the United States.

The indictment says she also helped other receive tax credits that she knew the taxpayers were not entitled to. 

Each conviction of tax evasion carries a possible maximum sentence of five years in federal prison, while aiding in the preparation of false tax returns carries a three-year-maximum term. Each conviction could also result in up to a $250,000 fine.

She is expected to make her initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jason B. Libby at 2:00 p.m. today.
