We recommend you take a listen to this interview on RMG radio on the case of James Moss. James is a business owner who hired employees do taxes for consumers. Moss had a group of rogue employees who were stealing social security numbers and fake drivers licenses so that they could file false tax returns. We’re not quit sure how they did it, but they got it done, all to the tune of stealing $500,000 from the IRS over a period of time: The tax refunds would come in and they would split the money among themselves and with an outside party.
You know how the IRS works; they eventually figure out if you’re stealing their money, just ask any rapper or celebrity out there with serious tax problems. We also know that you are likely going to get more time for stealing from the IRS than you are for killing someone in this country. So, the feds came after everyone involved, including the owner, James Moss.
The interesting thing about the case is that the IRS is seeking to send the owner of the business, Moss, to prison for 15 years. Moss has cooperated fully with the authorities from the moment he found out that there was a problem, even providing video surveillance showing one of his employees putting a tax return in her purse behind her back. Moss says that the minute he found out what his employees were doing, they were fired.
Moss gives a very revealing interview about the situation, making it clear that he had no idea that his employees were stealing from the IRS. He and his supporters do not understand why he received so much time in prison, and it appears that a deeper understanding of his situation might be called for.
Listen to the interview on RMG radio yourself and make a determination as to whether or not you believe he received justice in this case. Moss is set to be sentenced this week.
