A Binghamton man will serve a little over a year in federal prison after pleading guilty to preparing false tax returns and attempting to interfere with the administration of Internal Revenue Laws.

40 year old Donald Grant was accused of getting customers over $100,000 in refunds to which they were not entitled over the course of four years.

Officials with the U.S. Attorney’s office say Grant admitted he prepared 27 tax returns that contained false information and interfered with the IRS Criminal Investigation inquiry into the returns he prepared and filed by submitting a counterfeit profit and loss statement, encouraging clients to provide false information and providing false information himself.

In addition to the sentence of 15 years in prison, Grant is to serve one year supervised release and pay $107,045 in restitution to the IRS.
