What to do following tax preparer's arrest

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

Last week, a 50 count indictment was issued against Cristina Gonzalez. The indictment alleges she knowingly filed tax-returns and under-reported her income. It also claims she helped others receive tax credits that taxpayers weren't entitled too. Gonzalez was arrested Monday morning. 

If you were a client of Gonzalez, what can you do? 

"Look over your paperwork, if it's wrong, take it back and have them fix it. If it's a previous year, redo it, have an amendment, have it done correctly," said Priscilla Alvarez, Owner of Alvarez and Armadillo Tax Services. 

Alvarez says, when it comes to filing your taxes, mistakes are common. So far, she's had to redo about 100 people's taxes. Although, there are a lot of credit and reductions available. Alvarez says they are tricky.  

"Mileage is a big thing that gives a lot of credit it does, but a lot of tax preparer's are giving mileage, from home to work, that is not a deduction, it's from one job site, that's the mileage you are able to take," said Alvarez. 

Other mistakes are seen in credits for clothing expenses, farming and solar. 

At the end of the day, if you end up being audited, you will have to show proof of the credits. 

If not, you will have to pay back the money you received. 

Alvarez says, the IRS allows you to make changes up to four years. If you have questions, visit IRS.gov
