Iowa Tax Service Owner Pleads Guilty
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - An eastern Iowa woman has pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns.
Authorities say 60-year-old Regina Jimenez faces up to three years in federal prison. She entered her pleas on Friday in U.S. District Court in Davenport.
Federal prosecutors say Jimenez used her Clinton business from 2007 through 2011 to steal more than $200,000 from a client who believed that Jimenez would use the money to pay the client's taxes. Prosecutors say Jimenez instead used the money for her own expenditures and did not report the stolen funds on her tax returns.
