Anita Fortune, 56, of Alexandria, Virginia, pleaded guilty on Friday to conspiracy to defraud and to assisting in the preparation and filing of false tax returns.
In total, the tax loss caused to the IRS as a direct result of Fortune and her co-conspirators’ conspiracy for the tax years 2012 through 2018 was $189,748, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland.
Fortune was convicted of wire fraud in 2007 resulting in her IRS e-filing privileges being revoked.
Prosecutors said that she used multiple business names including Tax Terminatorz Inc.
Fortune will be required to pay restitution in the full amount of the loss, which the parties stipulate is at least $189,748, according to prosecutors.
Fortune faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison for the conspiracy and three years in federal prison for aiding and assisting in the preparation and filing of false tax returns, according to the news release.
U.S. District Judge Paul W. Grimm has scheduled sentencing for June 4.
